LeCraw Engineering Inc. continues to implement the goal of providing our clients with forward-thinking, technically sound, and cost-effective solutions. This means continuing to expand into professional planning, design, and engineering services that ensure a seamless transition from project visioning to implementation. We are now pleased to offer Land Planning as the next logical step towards meeting this goal.
We recently introduced you to Andy Camp and Michelle Macauley (link) as Business Development and Entitlements leaders respectively. After a rigorous talent search, we are happy to welcome Tony Catchot as LeCraw’s Director of Land Planning.
Director of Land Planning
Tony brings over 35 years of national and international, private and public planning, and design experience to this newly formed practice. His work expands across projects of varying size, complexity, and type. This includes college, university and medical campuses, urban/suburban mixed-use developments, innovation districts, corporate office and industrial parks, residential communities, and recreation complexes. He is skilled at leading integrated planning and design teams and enjoys engaging with clients and stakeholders to take projects from vision to reality.
Before Tony's recent return to private practice, he served as Assistant University Planner at the University of Michigan. During his 10 years with UM, he led or engaged with renowned architects, planners, and design consultants on many of the university’s significant projects. Tony also managed the University Planner's Office design review processes and was responsible for coordinating campus construction activities and interfacing with the host city to facilitate project reviews, approvals, and cost sharing on items of mutual interest.
Tony's experience in both the private and public sectors touches on many of the issues and opportunities our clients face today, or will likely see in the future. We believe that together with Andy and Michelle — and the rest of the LeCraw team — Tony will help us meet client goals by creating well-planned and technically-excellent projects that exceed expectation.
