Landscape Architecture is a broad discipline that covers a range of projects from assessment of regional and district landscapes; designing urban master plans and streetscapes through to the design and implementation of numerous local authority and community based projects.
Beca’s Landscape Architecture team is strongly aligned with the Urban Design team; as both focus on the design and implementation of high quality landscapes and urban built environments.
Beca’s Landscape Architecture team provides a design-led service with a strong focus on taking a project seamlessly from design concept through to implementation. The Beca approach is to work collaboratively with our clients to fully understand their project needs, explore the options available as well as the constraints and then deliver creative and practical solutions. Beca’s urnkey service from concept design to implementation means that we can maintain design integrity throughout the creative process.
Consultation through workshops, displays and open days is fundamental to connect with the communities who use the spaces and places we are creating. Our ability to design user-friendly graphics and our presentation skills enable us to clearly communicate concepts with clients, stakeholders and the general public.
We have an integrated approach to our work. The multi-disciplinary nature of many landscape architecture projects means we are able to call on other Beca in-house services to complement our offering, including urban design, planning, GIS, environmental, civil and traffic engineering, project management, and surveying.
