Abstract

The goal of this project was to develop a Best Practices Manual (BPM) for Stantec Inc regarding sustainable landscape architecture practices. The manual will be used by Stantec employees to help assess the feasibility of landscape architecture practices for specific projects. Potential Benefits, Potential Risks and Considerations, Estimated Costs, Recommended Site Characteristics, and Potential LEED Credits were researched and presented for each practice within the BPM. This information was then posted on an internal electronic best practices manual so that all employees within Stantec could access the information.
