Commercial landscape design services focus on creating functional, aesthetically pleasing outdoor spaces for businesses, organizations, and public spaces. Here's how we work with commercial design:

1. Needs Assessment
Conduct an initial needs assessment with the client to understand their business objectives, branding, target audience, and specific requirements for the outdoor space. Determine how the design can enhance the client's brand identity, customer experience, and operational efficiency.
2. Site Analysis
Perform a thorough site analysis to evaluate the existing conditions, site constraints, circulation patterns, and opportunities for improvement. Consider factors such as pedestrian flow, vehicular access, signage requirements, and zoning regulations to inform the design process.
3. Concept Development
Develop conceptual design ideas and themes that align with the client's brand identity, values, and objectives. Explore options for outdoor seating areas, pedestrian walkways, green spaces, and other amenities that enhance the functionality and appeal of the commercial property.
4. Design Collaboration
Collaborate with architects, engineers, and other professionals involved in the project to integrate the outdoor design seamlessly with the overall site plan and building architecture. Ensure coordination and communication throughout the design process to achieve a cohesive and integrated solution.
5. Accessible Canada Act Compliance
Ensure that the design complies with Accessible Canada Act (ACA) guidelines and accessibility standards to provide equal access to all users, including those with disabilities. Incorporate accessible pathways, ramps, and amenities to promote inclusivity and usability for everyone.
6. Sustainable Design Practices
Integrate sustainable design principles and practices into the design to minimize environmental impact, conserve resources, and enhance the long-term resilience of the outdoor space. Consider options for green infrastructure, water-efficient landscaping, renewable materials, and energy-efficient lighting.
7. Permitting and Regulatory Compliance
Navigate the permitting process and ensure compliance with local regulations, building codes, and zoning requirements for commercial properties. Obtain necessary approvals and permits for the proposed design to facilitate smooth project implementation.
8. Project Management
Oversee the implementation of the design from concept to completion, providing project management and coordination services to ensure that construction activities adhere to the design specifications, budget, and schedule. Monitor progress, address any issues or conflicts, and facilitate communication among stakeholders throughout the construction process.
9. Maintenance Planning
Develop a maintenance plan and schedule for the completed outdoor space to ensure its ongoing upkeep and longevity. Provide guidance on maintenance tasks, such as landscaping, irrigation, lighting, and furniture care, to preserve the functionality and aesthetics of the commercial property.
