Catalyst Design Group

Nashville, Tennessee

Catalyst Design Group is an innovative, multidisciplinary firm with combined expertise in planning, civil engineering, and landscape architecture. With offices in Nashville, Murfreesboro and Orlando, we support clients across a variety of markets throughout the Southeast and beyond.

Built on more than 100 years of combined experience, Catalyst opened its doors in August 2017 when our four founding principals came together to build upon a shared vision: that there is a better approach to design collaboration. From initial due diligence and entitlement phases until the final construction punch list is complete, our mission is to understand each of our clients' needs and develop creative solutions that achieve their aesthetic and functional goals.

Our team supports clients across 6 primary markets: Commercial | Mixed-Use, Educational | Institutional, Hospitality, Healthcare, Multifamily Residential and Single-Family Residential.
