Project Visioning & Planning Consults

Book a Consultation
Our qualified and dedicated team is able to meet a wide spectrum of ‘natural-project-needs’ from individual, natural structures to larger land developments, co-housing, and Eco-Community projects.
One of our greatest skills is to assist in clarifying the unique “voice” of what is being called into existence on the land, merged with your own unique desires, values and aesthetic, to create a project that truly fits, and brings beauty and harmony to the land and to your life.
Schedule a one-hour consultation with Paul River Richardson to get started.
Share your vision, get to know us better and determine if we are a good fit to work together.
At Haven Earth PMA we understand that creating a vision for any project is key to its success.
To do this, we utilize our years of experience, creativity and technical understanding to bring together your dreams and visions for your specific project, in a practical and clear vision.
We do this by considering several elements, firstly your own specific requirements, dreams and visions for the land, secondly, what the land is calling forth, both physically and energetically, and finally what is possible with design and materials.
The final vision is then downloaded into a project brief, and becomes the guiding document for the project all the way through to completion.

Architectural Hemp Design

After the visioning process is complete, and a realistic brief for the project has been agreed upon, we can begin the creative process through conceptual designs, and modeling.

The design is developed and further brought to life through the creation of all the details and elements of the structure and interiors, and finally laying out all the services for water, energy, waste and connectivity.

Each project is unique, yet each design follows a simple process which facilitates and explores the dimensions for your own personal project, whether it be for a home, a healing space, or other modest structure.

Working with Hemp is one of our specialties.

We understand the properties and possibilities these amazing natural building materials have to create healthy, healing buildings, meeting a plethora of needs and requirements for human habitation.

Designing with hemp as a living material can offer not only great versatile designs, but brings us into connection with our natural world in new ways.

If you have a project you are thinking to utilize Hemp-Crete, set up an initial consultation and we can explore the possibilities.

Master Planning

Master planning is the art of developing a design strategy at a macro scale, to help envision the differing parts and elements of the project to be located on the land.
For small residential one off projects this tends to be minimal, but when we move into larger developments, like eco-communities, schools, sacred structures, etc, a master plan is a valuable and integral way to bring cohesion and strategy to the scope and scale of the project, and also the many elements that make up the whole.

We combine our master planning skills with the principles and methods of permaculture and conscious land development, honoring systems that respect nature and harmonize with the land.

We look at how the project interfaces with the larger community, the people that will inhabit and use the spaces, and the biodynamic services that will support them.

Working with Haven Earth on your Master Plan will help to determine the possible scale and proportions of your project, and an overview that will serve (alongside the project brief) as a guide to the design of the individual elements that make up the whole, in a holistic and conscious way.

Project Management

When it comes to working with Natural Building Materials, and newer systems of building and land development, people often struggle to find qualified people to carry out and execute their larger goals.
Haven Earth is perfectly positioned to plug this gap currently existing, and to execute intentional and earth focussed projects of multiple scales and visions with a dedicated and inspired clientele.
After years of experience implementing multi-faceted and large-scale mixed-use developments, like Hotels, large residential projects, resorts, etc, we understand what it takes to develop any conscious eco-project on the land.

From connecting directly with the material sourcing and processors, all the way through to training the teams for execution, and final detailing, and all the mechanisms in between, we can work to oversee the process to take your unique project from conception to birth with ease and as much grace as possible.

To do this, we employ our knowledge and skill in managing all the elements; timeline, budget, design standards, quality control, material sourcing, and much more, to deliver a project in a most conscious and understandable way, where all involved feel a sense of ownership and part in their own contribution to the whole, and creation of the new nature friendly development.
