The Hansen team culture is built on pride and passion for our work

The multidisciplinary nature of our practice applies to not only what we do, but how we do it. Our services may be defined by the fields of urban planning, urban design and landscape architecture, but in reality we apply a spirit of collaboration to everything we do.
