KEY CONVERSATION 6: Big Projects - Infrastructure and Procurement

KEY CONVERSATION 6: Big Projects - Infrastructure and Procurement

The value of design must be fostered across a project. From early phase, high level budgetary decisions, through to the selection of rolling stock, cladding and paving types. This requires our decision makers and key advisors to open their minds and ask more questions of what designers can do for them. It also needs for the profession to undertake and embrace the challenge. If we are to make a positive difference, Landscape Architects need to acknowledge, capture and incorporate the complexity of big projects and infrastructure.
