Weston & Sampson is proud to have ranked #1 In a summary of the current largest landscape architecture firms in Massachusetts, according to Boston Business Journal (BBJ). The list is cultivated with information regarding the firms’ total 2020 billings for landscape architecture projects in Massachusetts.
Led by Gene Bolinger, RLA and Cheri Ruane, FASLA, Weston & Sampson fosters a staff of creative landscape architects, urban designers and planners and has amassed a growing portfolio of award-wining landscape design projects, including Mayor Thomas M. Menino Park, and Langone Park and Puopolo Playground, a climate-resilient, signature, waterfront park and the first project in the City of Boston to include climate-resilient features embedded throughout to protect the park’s shoreline, neighborhood, and other public assets from projected sea level rise. We are also leading the effort to develop a creative, innovative, and flexible master plan for the revitalization of historic Boston Common.
“We are in a sweet spot with the team we have assembled. We understand how important it is to have so many smart, talented, passionate and focused individuals producing work that is well received by our clients,” noted Bolinger.
From conceptual design and grant-writing assistance through the community participation process to final construction documentation and oversight, our team focuses on design excellence while understanding the importance of long-term project viability. As an integral part of an interdisciplinary company, our landscape architects have access to our civil, structural and infrastructure engineers, environmental site professionals, stormwater experts and scientists. These collaborative and comprehensive teaming capabilities enable our designers to produce creative and innovative open spaces that are technically sound through construction and will stand the test of time. Weston & Sampson’s designers use sustainable design strategies and materials in sophisticated ways to support their work in park and recreation designs, historical and environmental restorations, and the adaptive reuse of post-industrial Brownfield properties and landfills. Our designs ensure Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility and eligibility for federal, state, and local matching grants.
