Stewart’s bicycle and pedestrian practice is rooted in staff members who combine their passion and technical expertise to improve community mobility, safety, access, and health. We’re avid trail users, pedestrians, and bicyclists, so we know the value and joy great places and journeys can bring to people’s lives. Stewart strives to plan and design well-engineered, long-lived projects that enhance quality of life, aesthetic beauty, and sustainability in communities we serve.
To create great spaces, we work across disciplines from project conception to implementation. Trail, bikeway, sidewalk and greenway design incorporate not just engineering, but landscape architecture, structural design, hydrology, urban planning, surveying, construction administration, geotechnical investigations and materials testing. Our clients can rely on a singular collaborative team and our combined experience influences design decisions along the way.
From citywide bicycle network planning to greenway feasibility studies to the design of new trails, Stewart is at the forefront of bicycle and pedestrian planning and design. We have achieved several “firsts” in North Carolina, including the first NCDOT design/build greenway, first pedestrian suspension bridges in NC, and the State’s first cycle track/protected bike lane. We look forward to sharing our ideas and experience with communities across the State, seeing and helping to measure the impact on health, mobility, and economic development when bicyclists and pedestrians can safely connect with their communities.
