Building transformation. CSDG was established in 2001 as Civil Site Design Group by highly skilled civil engineers, each dedicated to transforming spaces to improve lives.

The company has itself transformed: Strategically moving beyond its civil specialty to build a team of professionals from diverse disciplines, including planners, landscape architects and designers, and transportation specialists. This unique model—an integrated firm with comprehensive capabilities—leads to a thoughtful balance in deliverables for its varied clientele.

Through a collaborative, cohesive process and without compromise, CSDG delivers solutions both aspirational and realistic to expand the view of what’s possible in the real world.
