Our History

Founded in Hawai‘i in 1953, we were one of the first consulting firms to integrate resort master planning and design. After developing the first integrated resort master plan for Kā‘anapali Beach Resort in 1955, we soon became recognized as an innovator and leader in destination tourism, paving the way for our expansion into Asia and the Pacific region.


Our employees are our most important asset. We provide ongoing staff mentoring to instill the values and vision of our founders. Internal growth has been the key to our firm’s success and longevity.
