Jennifer will be focussing her efforts on developing the Gardens of Gethsemani Cemetery Masterplan, West Vancouver Safety Building Developments, and Clayton Heights Secondary School Campus. Welcome Jennifer!
Also joining our team in the month of November is Mr. Eric Galt EIT. Eric is a civil engineer in training and has ample experience in design, and construction administration of commercial and residential clients. Eric will be joining our civil team and providing support on the Aldergrove Recreation Centre, Calgary Skateparks, and 17th & Yukon neighbourhood park. Welcome Eric!
VDZ is happy to announce two new additions to our capable team of Landscape architects, designers, and civil staff. This past month Ms. Phoenix Chan joined us from her previous posting at Ekistics, Toronto. Phoenix has worked in southern China, Halifax, and Toronto. Here areas of expertise are large-scale planning, Site-specific design, and advanced graphics.
Also this month, Ms. Milana Malesovich will be joining us from Hamilton, Ontario. Milana has worked in private practise in Southern Ontario, and most recently as the Design Head for a large design-build landscape construction firm. Milana has experience in commercial planning & design, civic plazas, and large-scale residential design and construction.
We are very pleased to have these two designers join our firm - part of our commitment to diversification of skill sets, and expertise for our clients. Having Milana and Phoenix bolster our current staff will be an asset for what appears to be a very busy Fall/Winter Design season.
