Duane Pritchett, co-founder and President of Environmental Design Studio, Inc., has been practicing Landscape Architecture for over 30 years. He has experience in a wide range of projects, from Campus Planning to Mixed Use Development. He has a critical eye with a determination to provide the best product for his colleagues and clients. To Duane, this means a product that not only looks great on paper but works in the field. This is a product that is within budget and a product that provides real value.

His expertise lies in the areas of Land Use Planning, Site Planning, Grading and Drainage, Real Estate Development, Stormwater Capture and Reuse, and Hardscape Construction.
