...then everything else.
BRV creates active, clean, safe, and densely-used public spaces that are financially self-sustaining. The following principles guide our work:
Great public spaces are critical to revitalizing neighborhoods, increasing property values, and improving safety.
We think about park programming first, and advise on complementary public space design later. Activities, comfort, and safety create places where people want to be. Structures and surfaces don't.
Public-private partnerships, governments, private property owners, and non-profits can all create great public spaces. There is is no single correct park management strategy, and we work with all types of clients.
Public spaces should be financially self-sustaining, rather than reliant on grants or donations. We advise all clients on how to achieve this.
Successful parks require the best and most efficient operations and staffing structures possible.
A park is never "done". We believe in trying new things constantly.
This work is complicated, and it takes time. We like a challenge. We hope you do too.
