our process

Using current industry standards and guidelines, we utilize a comprehensive process to plan new networks or improve existing trails.

Phase I: Goals and Objectives
The first step is to meet with our client to understand the goals and objectives. This provides a better understanding where issues and opportunities lie and how to best plan the scope work.

Phase II: Implementation
Once we understand our clients’ needs, we can then offer an array of solutions that target objectives. Our team of professionals offer a diverse skill set to create effective planning strategies.  Field assessment, mapping of assets, deployment of trail counters, geotechnical analysis may all be part of the required metrics to deliver on the identified objectives.

Phase III: Evaluation
Once work is complete, we ensure success for our client by providing support services including strategic planning, budgeting, management planning, usage analysis through trail counter deployment, education and outreach.

inventory, analyse & assess

We map, inventory and assess trails and specific assets to provide a physical overview of the current status using an objective set of criteria.
Following a comprehensive assessment, we work create a relevant planning strategy that targets determined objectives through long term, cost effective means.

Using budgets provided, phased action plans are then developed.

our tools & methodology

Data is gathered through the use of formalized field assessments that utilize current industry standards and guidelines.

We assess Risk & Impact to prioritize action plans including future recommendations and implementation timelines.


Field tagging of assets

Using proprietary material that is flexible, UV resistant and resilient enough to withstand the elements, we are able to numerically field tag assets for inspection reference.  In the ever-increasing need to inspect and document structure to create a reasonable and defensible Standard of Care, these serve as an effective tool to manage risk.


trail counters

We utilize game cameras, electromagnetic and beam activated trail counters to determine user pressure and patterns of usage to identify areas of concern and prioritize action plans. Often there is a knowledge gap when it comes to effective deployment and data analysis to fully utilize the complex software associated with these counters. We have extensive experience in this field to ensure effective results to discern the data set accordingly. From this data we are able to determine a clear picture of usage & impact. 

planning strategies

We work closely with our clients to create a vision and from this, derive an effective planning process that fulfills the vision.
We offer strategic planning services that help your vision become a reality using tried and tested methods while analyzing the best available data.  Our strategic approach aspires to be relevant and realistic, providing real world planning to minimize maintenance and construction costs while improving user experience to meet defined goals & identified objectives.

 

plan, design & project management

From trail restoration to planning of new trails & networks, we are project management experts.

We improve and design all trail types including restoration, reclamation, realignment, signage, kiosk, bridge and structure design. To manage the complexities of costs, phased development management and on time completion that fulfills vision requires expertise we are able to provide from our experience managing everything from small to large projects.
