Staffing Philosophy

An underlying principle of Land Use Economics is to be operationally efficient in order to ensure that clients receive high value access to the company intellectual capital. Over the years we have employed a strategy of teaming with individuals and professional services firms with specific skill sets designed to match the requirements of an engagement, and in this fashion have developed a network of trusted compatible staff and service providers. In addition to core staff we strategically reach out to other firms and specific practitioners with unique background on an opportunistic basis, whose experience often touches other disciplines involved in the development process.
