Commercial Landscape Design on Vancouver Island
Commercial landscape design is another service we provide for clients looking to develop properties that require special government approval. The tide of conscientious consumers is helping to shift the mindset which is now seeing beauty and value in naturalistic landscapes. We integrate stormwater management, hard surfaces, screening and softening of large commercial buildings, along with aesthetic beauty to create a well-functioning landscape.
Many regional districts on Vancouver Island look at alternative approaches to land design with favourable eyes. We approach all our design work from a holistic approach instead of imposing our will on the land, and the results are an improved aesthetic and functioning landscape which can cost less to install and equally importantly maintain.
Where do we start?
Our Commercial Landscape design service starts with an initial phone conversation to ensure that both parties are a good fit for one another. We follow this up with an exchange of project files to reach a greater understanding of the proposed project.
Once there is a clear scope of work established we will produce a landscape design proposal that clearly states the intent of all deliverables.
Upon acceptance, we move forward with the rest of your chosen design team and set a clear timeline of delivery on our work. Whether you are looking for landscape design for a building permit, Development permit, or re-zoning we can meet your needs. We pride ourselves in the high-quality products we deliver an open, inclusive working relationship we establish with our clients and team members.
Pricing for this service varies depending on many factors such as size, complexity, zoning constraints and others. Our deliverables would typically include:
- An initial concept plan: Once the civil and building plans have been developed we can add the hard and soft landscape requirements. The result is an initial concept which is delivered to you and shared between the team. After some discussion, subsequent revisions will occur until we have a final concept to build on.
- Final concept and details appropriate to your application: Once our final concept is complete, we look at what other design sheets you’ll need in your application. Most development permit applications require a certain level of detail which we provide, and this could be retaining walls, walkway materials or planting palette.
- Construction details: Construction details are typically added for a building permit and give the owner and contractor a clear idea of what and how to install during the construction phase. Examples of this are planting details, hard surface details, water feature details, etc.
