Our approach to planning carefully guides a client through this complex decision-making process. From planning and designing to constructing and occupying new and/or renovated facilities, every client’s needs are unique. Our comprehensive array of services can be applied totally or selectively in the development of flexible, cohesive, and realistic plans.

CGL's planning team specializes in both strategic system planning and facility development consulting for corrections, justice, and government administration. While a major result of the planning effort is often a constructed facility, our method embodies the functional aspects of system components to systematically define needs, resources, and solutions in a manner that permits accountability at all levels of decision-making.
