Company Overview:

Since 1976, Project Design Consultants has been involved in shaping communities through our professional design services that include planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering and land surveying. Our firm is comprised of a team of professionals aiding our clients who include some the nation's largest private land developers and homebuilders, as well as public agencies.

Policy frameworks, regulatory requirements, public improvements, and the face of urban and suburban development are constantly changing. We help our clients manage change in ways that transform communities and create opportunity.

In our world, opportunity has many forms. It can be the value added when a piece of land is planned and engineered to its highest potential, or a complex public works project is delivered on time and within budget. In all cases, it is the creation of places in which people live, work and thrive.

We are proud to be certified as a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) by the State of California.


We are known for our exceptional ability to provide quality services to our clients. Our management and staff are known for their exceptional client service, local knowledge, and technical competence. We are always ready, and have the ability, to find solutions to design challenges.

As an engineering consultant, our teams are accustomed to working in multi-disciplinary situations and PDC often plays the lead role on large-scale projects. We have been involved in projects that have ultimately shaped entire communities. These projects have ranged from the entitlement of raw land and the design of master-planned communities, to more recently the redevelopment of declining neighborhoods and dense, urban areas in what has become known as smart growth.

Our surveyors offer diverse and specialized services, ranging from exciting high-tech survey projects utilizing such sophisticated techniques as low-altitude aerial photography to GIS or satellite surveying and black and white infrared film. The degree of accuracy throughout these survey assignments is crucial because the results have a significant impact on the way precious land is utilized and developed.

PDC’s planning professionals have a proven track record of bridging the gap between governmental representatives, the developer, and consultant team, thereby increasing the overall value of each project. Our planners are experts are proficient in understanding the critical issues affecting land development and are well versed in taking projects from the conceptual phase through completion.

The role of landscape architecture is to optimize project opportunities into a comprehensive design concept that utilizes the project’s image infrastructure; that is consideration of project entries, nodes, project edges, landmarks, plazas, recreational facilities, open space and streetscape designs. Landscape Architecture is an essential element of all Planning and Urban Design projects at Project Design Consultants.
