Tim Delorm, L.L.A., P.P.

Tim DelormTim Delorm founded TerraNoble Design with the aspiration of creating symbiotic relationships between people, place and nature thereby achieving truly sustainable solutions to the world's pressing problems. He believes it is not sufficient to make things less unsustainable, rather we should strive to create regenerative projects that establish an intricate web of inter-relationships between natural, socio-economic and man-made systems. Tim has practiced for three decades as an urban designer and landscape architect with two of the design profession's most prominent consulting firms, Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum, PC and EDAW, Inc.

He has a broad range of project experience ranging from regenerating urban neighborhoods, to the creation of new conservation community master plans, to public parks, streetscapes, and gardens. In each of these areas of practice Tim is known as an active listener, committed collaborator, accomplished facilitator and presenter, principled creative designer and technically accomplished professional.

He appears regularly before state, municipal agencies and boards to provide expert testimony in the securing of entitlements. His attention to detail in understanding and addressing regulatory requirements and potential community impacts, within the context of local policy enable him to address key concerns early in a project's development.
