BASE AREAS + VILLAGES

Mountain villages and base lands facilities have become an increasingly important component of the modern resort experience. These commercial and lodging elements require careful planning and consideration to ensure they compliment the unique recreational and environmental attributes of the site. IAD excels in the integrated design of village and real estate areas that capture these elements and provide the highest value for the land assets. IAD provides complete design services to identify the opportunities of each site and create a vision for the project that is both functional and economical. During this process, IAD creates an interdisciplinary team of planners, architects, engineers and real estate economists to meet the contextual goals of the project and client.
