About Us

design-resource-group-collaborative-teamWelcome to Design Resource Group. We are landscape architects, civil engineers and transportation planners. Our firm is located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

DRG was founded in 1992 by our senior principals, Jim Guyton and Dez MacSorley. Through their leadership, DRG has consistently produced successful projects by creating an environment with a “can do” attitude and a willingness to go the extra mile. An environment where we have a drive to provide our clients with the highest level of service, to always “have their back.” This attitude is why we thrive and why we love what we do.

We are experts in higher-density housing forms and integrating the technical and aesthetic aspects of complex residential and mixed-use projects into the urban fabric. We also work with many different typologies on the land, including commercial developments, institutional, educational, green spaces and other forms of housing.

As a fully integrated and diverse design team, we have a few things in common – we understand the value of seamless collaboration, and we share a strong desire to use our expertise and knowledge to design solutions that will help people become piece and part of vibrant livable and comfortable spaces where they can live, work and play to the fullest.

Our clients are equally diverse. They have unique approaches and programs, but their desire for excellence in design and project delivery is the same as ours. Our experience and our cross-collaborative approach allow us to help create their vision while we successfully navigate through some of the more complex design considerations and challenges of each unique project.

We look forward to working with you.
