Over the past ten years Braun Associates, Inc. has been intimately involved in the planning and design of Colorado’s most notable shared ranch communities and conservation easement efforts. During this time we have developed a great appreciation for what ranches mean to the history and heritage of our state and how they influence the landscape of western Colorado. Our work is guided by stewardship of the land. The “art” of what we do is in finding a balance between limited development and sustainable ranching. A successful project is one that delicately integrates development into the landscape while maintaining the integrity and value of the ranch lands, scenic vistas and wildlife resources.
