Licensed Professionals with an Eye for Design
Landscape architects are involved in the design and planning of physical sites like parks, recreation areas, and school grounds. They bring a wide variety of expertise to the table, with a strong sense of aesthetics and an understanding of resource management. A landscape architect has undergone training that involves understanding how to integrate human needs with those of the natural environment.
In addition to their professional education, landscape architects have successfully passed a series of examinations. In British Columbia, the British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects regulates licensure.
Hiring a landscape architect can help take your design project from good to great. They can provide a variety of services to help the project go smoothly: planning and design, budget consultation, analysis and studies, preparation of drawings, contract administration, and construction reviews.
Landscape architects typically work with other design professionals to form a team of consultants. The team may include architects (especially in cases where a school is being seismically upgraded), engineers, and other specialists as needed.
