    “Chrysalis Center, Inc. and Chrysalis Center Real Estate Corporation have been collectively working with TO Design for over ten years. Mark Fisher is our go to person for all things landscaping and site design. He has designed all our landscaping and site design for our main campus, the former Sealtest Dairy Factory on Homestead Avenue in Hartford. Mark created a graceful landscape plan in an urban environment that has softened the look and feel of a former factory, and the green spaces are thriving. Many guests to our main campus comment on the beautiful landscape.

     

    Mark has also designed several site and landscape plans for our new affordable/supportive housing projects in Hartford and Greater Hartford, and the firm has represented us at zoning hearings and historic preservation commissions to garner approvals from the municipality.

     

    I would recommend TO Design as a top notch firm for developing and creating site and landscape architecture that is relevant, sensitive to the community, and on time and within budget.”

    “I can truly say that in every way, TO Design not only met our expectations, but surpassed them. TO Design invested more of its time in the project than our municipality had reason to expect, due to our limited budget, and their dedication was evidenced in the excellence of the final product. The resulting Master Plan was creative, yet practical, and provided us with real guidelines and phasing as we move forward on the project's next steps. I would add that TO Design was a true partner and available to us for any questions or concerns we might have.”

    “During each of these projects, I found Mr. Barlow and his staff easy to work with, cooperative and knowledgeable of the needs of each of these projects. His technical abilities were exceptional, but most importantly his ability to be flexible and do whatever necessary to assure the success of each of these projects made my job that much easier. Additionally, TO Design consistently met project schedules and budgets in each of the projects mentioned about. It is my opinion that it is important to match the technical abilities with the personality of a firm to work in a municipal setting. Mr. Barlow and his staff have these abilities.”
