TSW brings a diverse set of physical planning tools to its higher education clients. These services can be offered as part of an institutional master plan, in order to provide a campus with ready-to-implement plans that respond to identified needs, or in order to provide a greater level of detail beyond a typical master plan. These tools can also be applied to specific implementation projects in order to ensure a successful design based on dozens of projects completed by TSW’s planners, landscape architects, and architects.
