Reflecting on a remarkable year! From awards and accolades to enriching experiences and incredible projects, 2023 was a year of growth, recognition, and innovation for SDG. Our team’s dedication shone through with Brad Smith’s Alumni Volunteer Award and teaching venture, Haig Seferian’s impactful speeches, Allison Neuhauser’s ISA certification, and the arrival of talented Alyssa McDonald. We celebrated Vincent Fracchioni’s Brampton Urban Design Award and multiple wins at the Hamilton Urban Design Awards and Grands Prix Du Design. Witnessing the grand opening of the Burlington Public Library’s Reading Garden and the completion of the Hamilton Golf and Country Club’s patio enhancement and the rehabilitation of Waterloo Park filled us with pride. Our adventures took us to substantial projects like Casablanca Waterfront Park and the Niagara-on-the-Lake Entry Feature, not to mention the award-winning Gardens at Pillar and Post. Cheers to a year filled with achievements, growth, and impactful design! Here’s to more inspiration and success in 2024!
