Sector - Recreation Conservation

Beacon provides environmental planning, assessment, design and construction supervision for public and private sector projects related to the natural environment aspects of recreation and conservation projects. Beacon’s Ecologists, Arborists, Geomorphologists, and Landscape Architects  and Designers work together to address project challenges and opportunities related to the development and use of parks, natural areas and open spaces.

Projects often involve working with the local planning authority and the community to identify approaches and measures that are consistent with the applicable policy framework, protect sensitive environmental features, and accommodate required uses while incorporating innovative measures and design elements that support and enhance the natural environment.
