Our landscape architecture services group seek to positively impact communities we work with through the design of creative and sustainable social spaces that provide added value to our municipal infrastructure projects with artful, resilient streetscape and open space development.
Well planned and designed landscapes can enhance any number of our current services that help our clients improve the human and environmental health of their communities and integrate easily with the innovative flood control, green stormwater infrastructure, water resource, and environmental restoration work we already do.
Frequently, our project work for municipal and private clients results in construction that disrupts public space. We have long prided ourselves on the ability to combine infrastructure projects in attempt to reduce public disruption and also leverage the opportunity to create something multi-beneficial for the community. The added benefits of intentionally designed, high performing landscapes include energy efficiency of the built environment, increased property value, contributions to improved water quality, and above all, creating comfortable outdoor spaces for people to enjoy.
To build our scope of offerings, we welcomed Melissa Flatley to Woodard & Curran last year. She is an affiliate of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), professionally licensed Landscape Architect (LA) in Massachusetts, and brings nearly a decade of experience to her role leading our landscape architecture service line. In collaboration with our existing services, she will draw on her design and implementation work to develop adaptive landscape-based design solutions that provide increased ecological and social benefits for our communities. She is adept at managing complex, multi-stakeholder landscape projects from planning and design to permitting and construction.
