Collaboration With Other Firms

Mundie & Associates is a small firm, with senior staff members Roberta Mundie and Suzanne Lampert serving as project directors and providing their committed personal attention to clients' projects. M&A leads multi-firm collaborations when interdisciplinary teams best meet client needs, as is typical for CEQA projects; it is also frequently the case for planning projects, which may need the skills of an urban designer, traffic- and/or civil engineer to shape a plan's physical components and to frame physical alternatives for consideration by the consulting team and the client. M&A also serves on teams led by others who call on our abilities in economics, fiscal, and development studies to inform a broad planning effort or environmental impact analysis.
