About Beau Welling Design

Beau Welling Design is a uniquely experienced, multidisciplinary firm of planners and designers headquartered in Greenville, SC. Having been involved in notable community planning, recreational design, and urban redevelopment projects, the BWD team is known for delivering smart and impactful design solutions to complex multi-stakeholder projects.

The origins of the firm are in golf course design, as its principals have assisted in the creation and development of over 90 award winning golf courses around the world. But BWD was founded to be much more, a new type of firm which truly employs a holistic approach emphasizing the creative process of designing memorable spaces which help make or enhance communities. The firm continues to operate in the golf industry, but is also currently working on the two most significant urban design projects in the state of South Carolina.

BWD aims to add value to every project by adhering to a design process that addresses artistic, creative, financial, sustainable, and functional elements simultaneously. With an extreme focus on its clients’ goals and objectives, BWD delivers intellectually conceived and meaningful results.

When working with existing communities, BWD looks for solutions which carefully integrate ecological, social, cultural, economic, and historic influences. A special emphasis is placed upon asset analysis and land stewardship to identify and integrate site features into plans for smart development, while preserving open space. By doing so, BWD believes a comprehensive vision of future land development relationships can be established to inspire success and increased land value.

Overall, our BWD approach has been developed to assist our clients from initial strategy through implementation and branding, relying upon our global experience, expert knowledge, as well as proven methodologies and insights to lead to successful, innovative, and memorable projects.
