Whatever may be the size, type, or scope of your project, or whatever your design criteria may be, Morello & Associates will responsibly plan your site and design all proposed site features based on your needs and objectives. Our Design/Build process effectively streamlines the delivery of the project, saves time and money, and transfers the relationship between designers and builders into an alliance that fosters efficiency and collaboration. 



We analyze each of the site's physical features and cultural attributes, opportunities for its

best development and preservation, and any limiting factors. We document the pedestrian circulation and vehicular patterns, noise levels, prevailing wind directions, sun orientation, 
vegetation, any views/vistas, slopes, drainage, natural areas and wetlands to be protected.
