"... they provided excellent drawings during the workshop that depicted the schematic relationships of all recommended components and general character of the project and its architecture ... these were well received by all of the participants ..." - Terry Van Gorder, President, Knotts Berry Farm, Anaheim, CA

"Collaborative planning workshops are organized to encourage the participation of all. That includes everyone who is interested in the making of a development: the developer, business interests, government officials, interested residents, and activists." 


"Building owners, architects, and engineers can use the collaborative planning workshop process to save time and money by identifying and solving design problems before design and construction begin. a charrette is an intensive workshop in which various stakeholders and experts are brought together to address a particular design project."

  • With David, there is none of the ego that can get in the way between the client and the consultant. We found him to be highly knowledgeable and personable and fully tuned in to what we were trying to accomplish. Our project was relatively complicated and his knowledge of permits and how the planning commission works was invaluable. His expertise, business savvy and professionalism we're just right for us. I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • This looks just like what I need, a quick, no nonsense plan for the school and community center I'm working with.

  • CDM excels at bringing a calmness, confidence, and great technical proficiency to each scenario. David's disposition and ability to describe solutions in ways appropriate to the audience, either to laypersons or fellow engineers, is superb. David is a real pleasure to work with and adds value to every project with substantive and uniquely insightful contributions. I always recommend CDM.

  • As an example, even before a formal arrangement was defined, he made multiple site visits to give us his friendly professional opinion about a property we ultimately purchased. He was extremely accommodating and friendly throughout the entire process. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about both the architectural and contractual aspects of the business, he seems to have a great natural sense for what the client is looking to do, with the ability to easily drill into surrounding alternatives that might make the most sense for the lifestyle in question.
