In response to Asia’s emerging markets and a growing client base, EDSA expanded its footprint by opening an office in the heart of Shanghai. With direct access to China and many prime destinations throughout the region, this strategically located office provides for greater client interface and immediate access to EDSA’s wealth of experience. Most importantly, this expansion will improve EDSA’s service to existing clients by facilitating communication and providing design expertise. As an added benefit, the well-positioned office is poised to maintain close representation during the construction phase in an effort to preserve the design integrity of our client’s projects. EDSA’s portfolio includes more than 150 projects in Asia ranging in scale and scope from resort destinations, and residential communities to public waterfronts, community ‘green space’ parks, themed attractions and urban mixed-use, entertainment districts.
“Asia is a very dynamic entrepreneurial environment. Our strategy is to grow the office into a full-service design and construction administration studio grounded in EDSA’s culture and more than 50 years of worldwide experience. The Shanghai Studio brings U.S. leadership and an internationally trained staff providing the best in design and planning expertise to our local clients.” Scott Lamont, EDSA Principal.
