Welcome to my personal DoIT web site. Here you will find my contact information, my job description and projects, links to some of my documents and favorite software / technology web sites and other (useful) information was attracted to landscape architecture while finishing school. I liked the fact that in this area designs of any scale, whether big or small, improve the environment that people experience on a day-to-day basis.
There is a huge variety of work a landscape architect can be involved in. I have been involved in concept design, public consultation, detailed design, preparation of contract documents, tendering of jobs to contractors, supervising construction of jobs, and preparation of photo-simulations for Environment Court hearings, all within the last 18 months!
With this sort of project there is a lot of consultation involved. At the outset we meet with the public and discuss different concepts with them. We also work with architects, engineers, surveyors and the client. Because of the high amount of consultation involved, you need to have great communication skills. Some people understand the jargon and can read plans and construction details, while others can not. It is important that the ideas behind the design are communicated to everyone involved in the consultation process. This helps to ensure we receive useful feedback from which to make changes.
Although a lot of design work is done on computers these days, an ability to sketch ideas while talking to people cannot be underestimated.
Once the concept has been given the OK, we then tender out the work to contractors, who then employ sub-contractors with specific skills such as electricians, paving contractors and carpenters to get the job built. We supervise the project through to completion and work with the contractor to ensure the best quality job is produced, within budget and on time.
It's a great feeling to take a space that is rundown and transform it into an area that people will enjoy using and being in. It is also exciting to see people getting interested in a project and becoming a part of the design process, and to see the job built and being used, enjoyed and appreciated.
