FIRM OVERVIEW ELM is an integrated multi-disciplinary Environmental Design firm of experienced planners, architects, landscape architects, designers, and staff committed to making the world a better place. The power of strategic planning and good design makes our projects better, our clients more successful, and ultimately contributes to a better world. By practicing planning, architecture, and landscape architecture essentially as a single discipline ELM optimizes all aspects of design, creates efficiencies and economies, and unlocks the greatest possible value for our client’s projects. Serving clients nationally and internationally from studio offices in Jacksonville, Florida and Seattle, Washington the firm is recognized for its commitment to sustainable practice, innovative design excellence, and technical proficiency. ELM’s work encompasses projects in natural, learning, cultural, resort, commercial, recreational, visual, urban, and living environments - from the earliest phases of conceptual and strategic planning through all phases of design and construction.


CAPABILITIES MASTER PLANNING

ELM’s master-planning services range from large-scale environmental analysis to site-specific planning and design solutions for use patterns, access, circulation, development considerations, views, building design, and site utilization. The basis for the firm’s master planning work is the commitment to understand our client’s goals and objectives, and to think strategically and apply our creativity and expertise to achieve them. ELM has developed master plans for many high-profile destination and residential communities, resorts, and club facilities, often spanning numerous years and multiple project phases.

PROGRAMMING

ELM has proven experience in planning, data collection, spatial needs assessment, facility utilization, operational efficiency, multigenerational considerations, adaptability, and prioritization of program requirements for resort, club, and community facilities. In addition, ELM has experience in management strategies, operations, maintenance, and staffing needs. We work closely with clients to establish a refined budget, determine optimal high-performance service metrics, identify potential opportunities for efficiencies, and establish realistic project schedules.

MULTI-GENERATIONAL DESIGN

For more than two decades, ELM has been designing places and projects to serve the full crosssection of the population, ranging from playgrounds, to mixed-use development, to active adult communities, and to senior living facilities. We have seen changing activity patterns, with adults and seniors engaging in more diverse active recreational, social, cultural, and artistic pursuits, and being more inclusive across multiple generations, together with children and grandchildren. ELM’s partners and staff have been involved in the planning and design of some of the bestselling and most successful Active Adult communities in the nation, creating robust recreational and social amenities that have become models in the industry.

PERMITTING | ENTITLEMENTS

ELM has extensive experience in securing approvals for projects of widely diverse scales and types, including working with various forms of permits, approvals, and entitlements through municipal, county, state, and federal agencies and departments. ELM’s success in permitting and securing entitlements is a result of the firm’s experience, creative approach to problem-solving, and commitment to building constructive relationships with local constituents and reviewing agencies and staff.


ARCHITECTURE and LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

ELM provides comprehensive multi-disciplinary design services from Programming and Schematic Design through Construction Documents and Construction Administration in the disciplines of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The firm’s technically proficient staff works within a highly collaborative structure fully integrating building and site disciplines together through all phases of a project. This integrated approach and attention to detail reduces potential conflict, optimizes relationships, and has resulted in the creation of places of lasting value and enduring quality.

COMMUNITY PLANNING and DESIGN

Drawing on decades of experience and knowledge, ELM offers an extensive depth of expertise in the successful programming, planning and design of residential communities in a variety of locations and geographies. ELM’s understanding of development issues, market influences, and financial consequences brings value to the companies and individuals the firm advises. This understanding has contributed to numerous projects that have respected regional and cultural values, been environmentally responsible, and achieved sustainable economic success.

CLUB FACILITY and RESORT PLANNING

Club facilities, destination resorts, and community amenities share an intractable connection between site, building, landscape, context, environment, and culture. ELM brings decades of experience in the design and planning of dozens of noteworthy projects for high profile destination resorts, beach and golf clubs, and residential communities, and offers a strong knowledge and understanding of successful programming, design, and operational considerations. The firm’s multidisciplinary approach helps to create complete environments, grounded in the settings and context that make them special.

SIGNAGE and ENVIRONMENTAL GRAPHICS

ELM’s in-house graphic design, environmental graphics, and signage design capability creates identity, monumentation, directional, wayfinding programs, and regulatory signage that reinforces the project’s character and enhances the total design experience.
