CARMAN takes pride in creating and integrating the natural and built environments.  Our work has a long history of creating award winning sustainable environments used for a variety of purposes such as education, Recreation and place-making in the public realm.

CARMAN, formerly John L. Carman and Associates, was founded in 1980 with a philosophy of providing sensitive planning and design with an eye for the integration of technically sound responses to the natural and built environment.  We have met the challenges of this philosophy with a broad range of experience with both the public and private sector.  The commitment of our Landscape Architectural and Civil Engineering staff to each client has gained our firm the reputation of meeting unique demands of complex and challenging projects.  Our staff listens to our clients and creates an understanding of their needs.

CARMAN has the experience and qualifications to approach an assignment in a comprehensive manner.  We integrate creativity and technical expertise with an understanding of both small and large-scale environments.  The integration of Landscape Architecture, Land Planning, Environmental Planning and Civil Engineering places our staff in a unique position to provide quality and timely consultation. 

As a comprehensive site design consultant, CARMAN offers Civil Engineering as a means to provide quality, functional design solutions.  The Civil Engineering staff recognizes the need to engage technical workability into each and every design solution and strives to integrate pragmatic engineering needs of infrastructure, storm water management, and utilities without compromising quality design and insuring technically efficient results.
