Our Story

Bloc Design was founded in 2009 by Collin Brock, initially as a land planning and landscape architecture firm.  In 2011, longtime friend and colleague, Larry Lockhart joined as a managing partner, providing the firm with experienced civil engineering. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, the firm has quickly grown to thirteen employees covering both landscape architecture and civil engineering disciplines. 


Bloc Design is a collaborative, experienced and knowledgeable multi-disciplined consulting firm providing planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering services, and project management services. Our focus is to provide our clients with a committed creative approach to each project's unique character and challenges, as well as provide responsive, principal-driven project management. Bloc Design values the synergy of collaboration between the disciplines, balancing the blending of art and science with our creative and technical expertise.


Bloc Design and its managing partners have successfully delivered numerous projects through this carefully refined process, and have worked in nearly every major market sector including healthcare, mixed-use commercial, institutional, civic, residential communities and multi-family development, and urban planning.


Bloc Design and its staff are registered in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Alabama, and West Virginia. 

Creative. Responsive. Expertise. 

Service begins with the task of listening to the needs of others. Bloc Design seeks to understand the full complexity of the client's challenges and needs, no matter what the project or task's size. Our approach provides open forum of communication with a clear direction which results in a pro-active process from start to finish.


We focus on providing our clients with a responsive, pro-active process that walks them through capturing the initial vision during conceptual planning, into the documentation and permitting process, and finally to complex involvement of construction administration. We understand that communication and clearly understanding the client's goals determines the most creative and effective results.


Our firm efficiently and affordably integrates the extensive use of advanced technology and software, such as Autodesk Civil 3D, SITEOPS, Adobe Suites, multiple 3D modeling suites, and numerous engineering programs to provide our clients with accurate data and presentation quality graphics.
