MEP DESIGN INC.

Landscape Architecture

Since 1999, MEP DESIGN INC has developed landscapes that are created with power and simplicity, while always aiming to exceed the project commitments that we undertake. Working closely with architects, planners, and engineers, we execute assignments as either the prime consultant, or as an integral part of a larger project collaborative.

At MEP DESIGN, we provide a full range of professional consulting services in landscape architecture, urban design, project management, and site planning. Our body of work includes the successful completion of numerous assignments throughout North America and Asia. On an ongoing basis, we find ourselves involved with projects ranging from public park improvements, urban design revitalization studies, detailed design and approvals for new infill residential developments, and site planning of corporate office/industrial parks.

Our team thrives on designing and developing responsible solutions for our clients’ projects, and we are driven to find the optimal way of achieving this goal through a method often ineffable, yet elegantly simple and precise.

MEP Design pays attention to the subtle details.

because it’s the details that make all the difference.
