Plan West has been a community design firm since 1973. We are land planners, landscape architects, and entitlement managers that work almost exclusively in the private sector for land owners, developers and builders along the Denver and Colorado Front Range. The operating philosophy and size of Plan West enable us to provide our clients with maximum involvement by principals and senior staff.

Our clients most often position Plan West as leader of a consulting team assembled to conceptualize, design, entitle, and assist in the implementation of development projects. Our residential experience ranges from small condo complexes to entire planned communities. Our commercial experience ranges from single building site designs to entire planned business parks and retail environments.

What distinguishes Plan West is the depth of our expertise and credibility in the land development industry. Over 98% of our projects have become part of the built environment, and in turn, our greatest reward is that over 70% of our new projects come from repeat and referral clients.
