Civilitude was an early adopter of low impact development techniques for stormwater treatment and controls that are essential in contributing to the green framework of the City beyond code requirements, one rain garden, and one cistern at a time. Our team members also actively engage at various Boards and Commissions that advocate for sustainability policies. The same commitment to high standards of practice is found in our work in utilities, sidewalks, trails, roadways, and parks.
Civilitude understands that the priorities that are native to suburban sites may differ from those of their urban infill counterparts. Through successful school, affordable housing, senior housing, industrial complex, and other residential and commercial projects adjacent to a nature preserve, near endangered species habitats, and nestled within critical environmental features, we understand the unique challenges of protecting our watershed, trees, and animals while creating high-quality living environments.
Civilitude’s core reputation is our ability to deliver site permits in the challenging context of the Urban Core. We value the existing fabric of our neighborhoods, are capable of evaluating various infill products and tools, prepared to quickly navigate hurdles along the way, and most importantly, dedicate ourselves to achieving the site vision set out by our clients. Our staff brings in-depth knowledge in entitlements, utilities, transportation, environment, and permitting that carry projects all the way through Certificate of Occupancy.
Civilitude is proud to serve the heart and soul of central Texas-Downtown Austin. From zoning overlays, license agreements and density bonuses to congested subsurface utilities, complex traffic control, and a compressed timeline, the Civilitude team is tested and proven to deliver results for high demanding projects. Our principals played critical roles in one of the largest Downtown projects in Austin – the Greenwater Redevelopment – with public street extensions and four full blocks for high-rises.
