At Environmental Design Group, it’s about the type of impacts we make and the kind of people that help us reach those goals. We are the aspirers, the visionaries, the envelope pushers, the creators, the progressives and the accomplishers. We are the community impact people.
WHAT MAKES ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN GROUP THE COMMUNITY IMPACT PEOPLE?
Since 1984, we have been making a lasting community impact that markedly improves the well-being of people and communities. We stand as a positive force, providing professional planning, environmental design and engineering services to shape, define, utilize, conserve and restore land and water resources. Impact is an accomplishment – something that comes from acting in harmony with the space and those devoted to the cause. Our company is built around collaboration, among our diverse team of experts. We serve a purpose together, starting with the integration of environmental design professionals.
Through the integration of engineering science and design, we strive to make communities safer, more livable, more sustainable, more beautiful, more useful, more connected, and more socially engaging by creating a lasting impact in everything we do.
We believe every project has the potential to create a positive impact on people and their communities in a way that preserves the natural environment; makes the best use of natural resources; provides a safe and effective infrastructure; and improves the quality of life through environmental design that balances natural and built resources.

Founded in 1984, our name was chosen to express our intent to focus on environmental quality, preservation, and healing. Armed with a strong sense of stewardship, our professional services consulting firm fosters success by way of specific, yet integrated project teams in the disciplines of civil engineering, landscape architecture, planning, surveying, environmental sciences, transportation, and construction administration.
Having come of age during a time of environmental awakening and activism, our founders fostered a strong sense of stewardship. After a leveraged buyout of the former Snell Environmental Group (SEG) in 1984 by a group of its former employees, Environmental Design Group was founded. By the late 1980s, we were well known and respected for our environmental ethics and collaborative team approach to project development.
Our continuing evolution of project approach led us to align our practice more openly with a sustainable practices philosophy. The parks community embraced our approach, awarding us numerous signature projects and awards landing us in an LA article magazine in 1999.
We believe, and made the convincing argument, that preserving sensitive lands and open space as development assets can improve the bottom line and enrich the quality of communities in our region. How? By utilizing the existing, unique qualities of a project site to mark it as a special and desirable space, all while reducing construction costs through sustainable design practices.
As a full-service, multi-disciplinary firm, Environmental Design Group continued to assist Ohio communities to think differently. We peered into the future of disruption and innovation to anticipate disruptions to our systems and explore new advancements in technology. We collaborated with Ohio communities to be at the forefront of how to navigate, advance, and thrive under these new paradigms.
We continue to think differently about the future and how it will impact how we live, work, and raise our families. As we aim to be at the forefront of helping our clients navigate, advance, and thrive under new paradigms, we developed a Client Experience program that allows us to strengthen our communication and engagement process, creating real and lasting value for our employees, clients, and partners and communities.
