As noted in a recent letter from the president of the American Society of Landscape Architects, “At no other time since the founding of our profession have we enjoyed greater recognition by allied design professionals, the design community, and the general public.”
At UBLA, we are fortunate to have a series of clients bringing in the landscape architects at the onset with other project consultants to help guide the planning process. One such client is the Martins Companies, located in Danvers, MA, who brought us on board to help update Cadillac Village of Norwood with Norwood Engineering and ahp Architects.
The scope of work involved transforming the existing ‘circus tent’ structure into a more refined facade and improving the general aesthetics and circulation sequence.
UBLA provided site plans reducing the paved area, increasing the landscape spaces, and greatly improving the vehicular circulation. Special care was taken to soften unwanted views and improve the customer’s experience of the site.
Molly Martins, Vice President of Martins Construction Company, Inc, said recently, “For 30 years we’ve been providing design/build and construction services to commercial, institutional and residential clients throughout New England. We are currently working with the Village Automotive Group on seven different dealership projects, providing services from permitting to design and construction, the latest being Cadillac of Norwood.” She went on to say, “Throughout this process, UBLA has been incredibly responsive. Like Martins, they take a very collaborative approach which made them an ideal choice for us and we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of their work.”
We look forward to working with the Martins Companies again in the future!
