Single Family

McAdams’ experience with planning and designing residential neighborhoods and master-planned communities is extensive. Our projects range from highly dense neotraditional residential developments to more conventional suburban subdivisions. Additionally, we offer expertise with wastewater treatment facilities in rural and resort areas without municipal service. Our experts know the residential market and we have served the many of the nation’s largest builders and residential developers.


McAdams has provided expert planning and design for many multi-family developments across the Southeast. Our understanding the design, construction, engineering, management and occupant demands for the most complex apartment, condominium or townhouse projects is unmatched. The firm has a tremendous amount of experience in all forms of multi-family projects whether you intend to build townhomes, garden style apartments, integrated mixed-use units or even an urban high-rise residential tower, McAdams has the experience and staff you need.

Senior Living Communities

Senior living communities require a special consideration for planning and design and McAdams has the expertise to address these considerations. Design elements for this type of project have to be sensitive to its age-targeted residents. From flat parking lots to central amenities, safety concerns and additional utility requirements, we have a pulse on the needs of senior living communities. McAdams has an extensive list of successful senior living projects ranging from full service congregate care centers (CCRC) to complete skilled care nursing facilities.

Golf Course Communities

Providing a continuum of land development design services for golf course communities has been a specialty of McAdams since 1979. We have been involved with some of North Carolina’s most prestigious developments including Landfall, Old North State Club, and Brier Creek. Our projects have required that we work along side some of the world’s most sought-after golf course architects such as Pete Dye, Tom Fazio and Arnold Palmer.
