BIA staff members are experienced in the art of analyzing, planning, and designing outdoor spaces that use plantings, water, paving, and structures. We also understand the use of the land itself in the design of communities, campuses, parks, gardens, and heritage conservation.
Open spaces, trails, playgrounds, sports fields, and courtyards enhance the quality of life. BIA has worked with municipalities, school districts, private property owners, and state agencies in the design and development of park and recreational facilities. Documents required to carry the designs of park and recreation facilities can potentially require many of the BIA services outlined in this Civil Engineering category.
Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are powerful computer-based tools that efficiently capture, store, update, analyze, and display data, making it most meaningful when presented in a map format. Business applications include the management of demographic and market data, regulatory compliance, inventory management, and facilities management. Public sector applications include planning and managing water resources and environmental and land-use resources — as well as zoning, traffic planning and management, public works functions, and facilitating emergency services.
