About Us

Since 1976 PWL Partnership has transformed built and natural environments into vibrant and memorable destinations in ways that honour the cultural, historic and environmental attributes of place.  

Each PWL project is infused with research and rooted in context resulting in thoughtful, site-responsive places. We believe even the boldest landscape architectural statement needs to be practical in function, so we begin every project by considering its anticipated users and then create spaces that will be enriched by future generations. Our goal is to have every landscape be truly regenerative—to give more than it takes.

COVID-19 Response

Updated January 2022

PWL Partnership has updated our COVID-19 Safety Plan to include Communicable Disease Prevention Protocols per the Provincial Health Officer's recommendations. With the rise of the Omicron variant, we are committed to providing a safe and effective work environment for our employees and respect the wellbeing of our clients, community and those most vulnerable to communicable diseases. We will continue to follow the guidance of the Provincial Health Officer of British Columbia and adjust our company operations as required. We are confident that our services and work product remain at the highest standard, even in this time of uncertainty.

Our staff continues to connect remotely successfully, and we have seen the minimal impact on our projects and clients. We respect our client's and collaborator's health; therefore, we will continue to hold meetings via online platforms whenever possible. For all site visits and in-person meetings, a face mask and physical distance protocol will continue to be put into practice.

Our office is presently closed due to the rise of the Omicron variant. Couriers and deliveries will take place in the building lobby. Visitors will not be allowed. For all inquiries, please contact reception at (604) 688. 6111.

The health of our team, families, clients, and community is our highest priority. We look forward to getting through these difficult times together.
