Transit Oriented Projects
"For existing large-scale design/construction projects, Halcyon offers the ability to credibly suggest better alternatives, while artfully securing consensus on cost vs. benefits of changes. Particularly important, Halcyon can bridge private and public sector interests and convey the needs of users not yet present."
