Laying Lightly on the Land
As we celebrate our 20th year of serving the National Park Service (NPS), Otak is proud to support the NPS mission, “To conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.”
Otak provides planning and design services to national parks across the United States under multiple IDIQ contracts. Our in-house team is fully knowledgeable of and experienced with NPS workflow procedures, standards, value-based decision-making methods, cost estimating formats, and standards for construction documents. Our landscape architects often serve as task order managers and work integrally with our interdisciplinary design teams on NPS assignments, bringing a strong understanding of each park setting’s unique context and the best solutions for laying lightly on the land, protecting resources, and enhancing the visitor experience.
