Anchor QEA’s landscape architects focus on creating places where people and the environment mutually benefit. Our emphasis on shoreline and water resource projects provides diverse opportunities to integrate landscape architecture, shoreline public access, and habitat restoration. We focus on habitat restoration/mitigation design for wetlands, streams, estuaries, and lake and marine shorelines; shoreline public access design; and parks and recreation facilities design. This range of expertise allows our clients to use landscape architecture as a tool to help untangle and resolve seemingly conflicting goals, such as integrating both habitat restoration and recreational access, on shoreline and water resource projects. Anchor QEA’s landscape architect services include stakeholder and public involvement, master planning and design development, permitting, construction documents, cost estimating, bidding, and construction administration. We are also well versed in parks and recreation facilities design guidelines.
