Landscape Architect Firm
Binnie offers landscape architecture and urban design expertise. We have extensive experience in open space design, municipal landscape architecture, community spaces, and LEED / sustainable design.
A landscape architect firm provides design and planning for exterior and open spaces. Binnie does more than that: we integrate our engineering services with landscape architecture to create exterior and open spaces that meet community needs and that work effectively in the environment.
Binnie has an intimately-sized working group of eleven designers and technicians, led by our Landscape Architecture Manager, Blair Arbuthnot, MBCSLA. Our Landscape Design Studio is responsible for Binnie’s creative design portfolio, and specializes in Municipal Parks and Recreation projects. We also provide Landscape Design services for private developments. From single-family residential to multi-family towers and townhomes, from commercial and industrial subdivisions to land development application, our Studio understands and provides the landscape design services that our clients need for the successful completion of their projects.
We understand how to balance the desire for innovative and creative design solutions with restricted capital budgets and the practical ongoing maintenance programs commonly found in Public Sector projects.
Our Landscape Design Studio also has the ability to pull additional resources and expertise from Binnie’s other disciplines whenever needed to ensure your timelines and budgets are met. Working alongside our Landscape Architects, our Civil Engineers bring a high level of attention to scheduling, project management, and cost control. Our background and depth gives us a unique advantage on municipal sports facility and landscape projects, and gives our clients access to a robust, multi-disciplinary team, from a single point of contact.
In all of the work we do, we understand the importance of creating a design or plan that meets the needs of the people who use the space. Exterior space enhances, extends, constrains, and is functional; there is a purpose to all landscaping effort. To create a space that works, and that marries design with function, we ensure that our landscape architects work closely with our engineering consultants to develop sustainable projects that connect communities.
We integrate design and space to achieve sustainable projects that are usable, that integrate well with their environment, and that reflect community needs.
