Planning Services

Our highly collaborative services range from data gathering and master planning to the critical stage of pre-bond planning. We reflect specific client needs and maximize client resources to prepare for achievable programs and projects.

A Collaborative approach for Today and Tomorrow

MAAS guides and supports program exploration and preparation from early assessments and master planning to the critical pre-bond services that translate master plans into programs.
