Many times, Tatsumi and Partners takes on the role of visual quality managers for various projects and contributes to them with aesthetic treatment designs and assisting with materials/texture/color selection for structural elements and site amenities. Recent projects have had Tatsumi performed this function for entire highway corridors including the visual appeal of bridges, walls, ground surface pavement and site furnishings such as lighting fixtures and fencing/railing. Additionally the firm is assisted on several bridge designs by contributing the visual themes of various elements. In many instances, graphic color boards are prepared and presented to stakeholders including community groups and municipal organizations and councils.
