- Chris Elliott - RRCEA, LLC

Craig Karn and Consilium Design have been working with our firm for a number of years. We have had the great opportunity to engage Consilium Design in the award-winning Vallagio mixed-use neighborhood within Inverness in Englewood, Colorado. They have done an outstanding job of integrating water quality components at the site plan level using bio swales and natural filtration planting beds. The result is an aesthetically appealing landscape that also succeeds in achieving the required water treatment and drainage-way functions as well. The firm is a great team of visionaries and executors, who respect the changing environment of housing. We have found them to be great resource managers who are budget driven and extremely loyal. Communication with planning partners and municipality representatives went extremely well.

- Tim Mc Entee, Director - Wood Partners

As Vice President of LNR Property Corp., the developer of the 1,800-acre High Point master-planned community in Denver and Aurora adjacent to the Denver International Airport, I was always favorably impressed by the professionals at Consilium Design. The Consilium team provided a variety of services for a complex, multi-jurisdictional project including land planning, entitlements, urban design, TOD planning and landscape architecture - always providing excellent customer service in a timely and responsive manner.

As a trusted team member from the project’s inception, the team at Consilium has built solid relationships based on collaboration with all team members including city officials, third-party consultants and corporate executives. Their work product has always been outstanding while they always maintained a perspective on our project budget. I can recall many instances that the team “rolled up their sleeves” to find creative solutions to the inevitable challenges of a large community development.

- Gardiner Hammond - Hammond Site Resources, LLC

The team at Consilium has been instrumental in designing dynamic communities with great neighborhoods, parks and open spaces, as well as navigating neighborhood meetings and public hearings over the course of jurisdictional approvals for the project. I have known Craig Karn as an industry peer for years. He and Consilium Design provide creative and workable design solutions that are livable and create a sense of place. I look forward to working with them on new projects in the future.

Consilium embraces a holistic approach that honors the land, the design process, and all parties involved. The result is an original, vibrant space that creates harmony between people and the surrounding environment.

I have worked with Craig and Consilium on planning and entitlements for two master-planned communities in Berthoud, Colorado as well as some preliminary design work on a community in Frederick, Colorado. With each of these projects Consilium Design demonstrated their ability to work in a collaborative environment, create high quality design solutions and overcome the challenges associated with public outreach and gaining jurisdictional approvals. Because of the effective working relationship that we have developed with Craig and Consilium Design, we will continue to work with them on our future projects as the real estate world recovers. I would happily recommend Consilium Design for planning and landscape architecture services.
