Members of the Espiritu Loci team are experienced in working with professional golf course designers to create courses with unique playing conditions that maximize premiums for adjacent custom and production lotting. When routing a course through a project, we work closely with the course designer in the field, situating the clubhouse, rest rooms and maintenance facilities, while blending the course into the natural landscape. We also find ways to use land, such as washes, that may not have been suitable or accessible for other types of development. This approach allows for distinctive and challenging courses, while preserving developable land for other uses.
Espiritu Loci can create or assist with the development of your environmental design master plan, which is an important component in creating a unified theme and look for the overall community. The plan can properly address environmental issues that may arise on a site and aid in transitioning between diverse neighborhoods. Our attention to detail and concern for maximizing land value gives us an advantage in creating successful and useful plans. For example, by placing recreational uses in flood prone regions we maximize the amount of developable land, increase the efficiency of flood structures and create lot premiums.
A master plan is essential for any large-scale development. The plan describes how individual parts relate to each other and defines the phasing of infrastructure and sales. Espiritu Loci simplifies the complex and involved task of creating a master plan. Our development background and thorough knowledge of each component in a master planned community allows us to create plans that maximize the efficiencies gained by a mix of uses. We understand the requirements of residential, resort and golf course development. We know what to watch for when creating commercial and community cores, and our fundamental understanding of architecture, landscape, engineering, marketing and the development process, is invaluable.
Through master planning you can increase the efficiency of your amenities, parks and open spaces. By providing a wide array of recreational opportunities, social settings and ways to interact with the natural surroundings, the value of your development is increased. We develop plans for parks and amenities that are valuable land use and community components, rather than simply left over space or marketing after-thoughts. This regard for integrated amenities creates increased consumer appeal and is vital to a successful master plan.
Infrastructure, in the form of roads, is the most visible and unifying element in a development. It provides the connective tissue within the community. Our site planning experience allows us to design infrastructure that minimizes inefficient parcel shapes and sizes, while creating a stronger community identity through landscape and theme elements. We also work with engineering teams to seamlessly incorporate other infrastructure facilities. Our team can also plan routes for major utility corridors, both through communities and on a regional level. To do this, we find creative ways to work with the natural topography in order to maximize the efficiency of the infrastructure and minimize costs.
