With one in five Americans in the 65+ age bracket by the year 2030, a tsunami of retiring Boomers is impacting the aging services industry like never before. Brad Smith Associates, Inc. is a mold-breaking exterior planning and design firm, serving the aging services industry through the process we call PLACE-Creation. Our approach focuses on cultivating a deep sense of community while providing an enhanced level of well-being for residents, their families, and those who work in a variety of senior living environments.
Our Director of Imaginality™, Scott Girard, has deep roots within the Disney organization. His experiences there have shaped our understanding of the pivotal role that landscape architects can and should play in influencing your approach to exterior design and area development.
We use an integrated project delivery approach by "owning the exterior".
Scott’s old boss, Walt Disney, used to insist that everything outside the walls of the building should be the domain of the landscape architect. Today, we still embrace the wisdom of this approach. By considering ourselves as “set-designers”, our outdoor spaces are the stage on which meaningful interactions occur.
Our proprietary LandEconics software can help you make informed decisions that will push dollars to your bottom line. We use it to analyze the business case for sustainability and the management of your landscapes as Living Assets.
Our focus on PLACE-Creation™ combines the qualities of Planning, Lifestyle, Aesthetics, Community and Economics into a cohesive approach that yields places where people enjoy being.
