Community & Stakeholder Engagement

A Collaborative Approach

Mahan Rykiel deploys a rigorous and collaborative approach to design and planning to draw out and maximize the unique potential of each project. This approach is grounded in the firm’s stakeholder engagement efforts which begin in the early phases of project development and continue throughout each subsequent phase of the project.

Interactive Engagement 

MRA utilizes a variety of interactive engagement tools and forums that include one-on-one leadership interviews, focus group discussions, on-site workshops, public meetings, social media, web-based surveys, and field interviews.

Meeting the Needs of our Clients

Within the context of each project we tailor the engagement processes to meet the needs of our clients and stakeholders; ranging from small targeted groups of stakeholders for projects in the private sector to broad and diverse groups in projects that impact the public realm.
