The Mission of Birchwood Design Group is to weave the goals and aspirations of our clients into viable solutions by delivering comprehensive planning and design services.
Founded by Kris M. Bradner, RLA and Arthur J. Eddy, RLA, LEED AP, Birchwood Design Group (BDG) provides creative, engaging and sustainable landscape architecture while fostering the growth and achievement of our employees. Our strengths lie in our team approach to projects and our foresight regarding implementation and construction. By cultivating an atmosphere of collaboration with consultants, clients and user groups and approaching each project with pragmatism and innovation as guiding values, Birchwood Design Group is able to create landscapes of lasting value and beauty which reconcile the needs and aspirations of owners, stakeholders and users.
We specialize in the commercial, institutional and public sectors locally, regionally and nationally. Project types we work on include hospitality and residential/office/commercial complexes, institutional planning and design, including private and public schools, universities and libraries and public projects encompassing streetscapes, transportation corridors, public housing and municipal master planning.
Birchwood Design Group is committed to improving the built environment and enhancing human experience through design. We strive to create the beautiful and sublime while at the same time having a positive impact upon the environmental, cultural and social life of our clients and communities. We want to make places that are exciting and memorable; meaningful and lasting. We create spaces and places for enjoying life, discovering the environment around us and having a place to dwell in the world. Regardless of the project type we maintain the same imaginative and rigorous design process.
We employ original and innovative design thinking combined with sound working strategies grounded in art, science and sustainable principles to arrive at the landscapes, spaces and places we create.
We do not profess to have all the answers or attempt to advance a singular vision. We are committed to a participatory design process engaging clients, user groups and stake holders in the creation of unique and engaging spaces and places. We view each client and project through the unique lens of its specific circumstances and site and the clients’ needs, aspirations, requirements and budget.
Working in collaboration with other consultants and our clients, we arrive at cohesive and functional landscapes which embody timeless aspects of beauty, construction, sustainability and environmental soundness.
