The primary goal of infrastructure is to improve the well-being and operation of the community it supports. To this end, many public entities have instituted “Active Design Guidelines” which demonstrate that design can encourage active lifestyles. Many of these entities are also building an array of project types that support and contribute to the goal of reducing income and employment disparities.
NV5’s engineers assists clients with the design of infrastructure that incorporates healthy living components, and our inspectors validate compliance with these design guidelines.
From greenways and park designs to multi-use paths and biking access, NV5’s designs are helping to create the conditions by which people of all ages can live, work, learn and play in neighborhoods that promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
For over 40 years, NV5 has developed bicycle/pedestrian masterplans for hundreds of communities, establishing a framework for infrastructure that supports healthy living.
