    Congratulations to Logan Simpson designer Mariana Pereira, who was awarded the City of Tempe, Arizona’s Tom Ringhofer Architectural Award as part of the city’s 2018 Mayor’s Disability Awards.

  • Wayne Bartholomew Park Honored as Outstanding Project

    WB_2Utah Construction & Design Magazine announced the winners of its “Most Outstanding Projects.” Wayne Bartholomew Park, one of our Salt Lake City office’s projects, was honored in the Landscape/Public Space (Small) category. It was one of 31 projects selected by a panel of industry professionals in the architectural, engineering and construction industry.

    Logan Simpson designed a swimming beach, boardwalk, fishing docks, amphitheater, parking, trails, restrooms, and picnic sites for this 25-acre property at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon. The property has historically been a spring collection area for the City as well as agriculture property for the Wayne Bartholomew family. In 2012 Springville City received grant monies to create a secondary water storage pond at the park. Through the grant, the City was able to construct a four-acre pond on the site.

    Within the past two years, our Salt Lake City landscape architecture design team has completed six major park master planning projects for Salt Lake City, Midvale, and Springville. Four of the six projects are under construction or have been completed in accordance with the master plan goals objectives and preliminary construction budgets.

  • Low Impact Development Toolkit Wins AZ-APA Award

    We are excitbioswaleed to announce that the Low Impact Development Toolkit has been named by the Arizona Chapter of the American Planning Association’s Award Committee as the winner in the Ordinance category. Like most communities spanning Arizona, the cities of Mesa and Glendale historically considered stormwater to be a nuisance that needed to be quickly eliminated through an expensive pipe and channel system.

    By developing and advancing Low Impact Development, these communities are shifting the stormwater paradigm and recognizing stormwater as a resource that can be used to promote healthy urban communities. LID is a stormwater management method that engages native materials and simple tools to reduce runoff and pollution. The toolkit provides a user-friendly menu of LID methods, best practices, technical requirements and construction details that help communities restore washes and enhance streetscapes or parks while cooling down cities at night. Congratulations to our uber-talented teammates who brought this project to life!
