Community Planning & Infrastructure

Dillon is a leader in planning, designing, building, and maintaining community infrastructure. We are innovators in this field and are sought after from coast to coast to coast and abroad. We bring human-centered thinking and design solutions to projects that connect communities and bring spaces to life. With our experience we are able to coordinate and complete complex projects under strict timelines.

Our team pushes the edges of community planning and conventional engineering to incorporate solutions which contribute to a higher degree of environmental sustainability and social benefits to the communities served. We adapt well-established practices and emerging principles, such as Low Impact Development (LID) measures, and leading-edge solutions in both urban redevelopment and “greenfield” applications. We lead by example and recognize that cities are living organisms that require adaptive frameworks and flexible designs to achieve long-term social inclusion, economic prosperity, and environmental resilience.
