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 September 2020

Over the past 6 months, our team has taken the necessary precautions to continue the effectiveness of our practice while doing our part to slow the spread of Covid-19. 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 the virus. 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 remains at the highest standard, even in this time of uncertainty.

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

Our office is presently partially open, allowing for a maximum of 21 staff in the office at one time. Visitors will not be allowed. Couriers and deliveries will take place in the building lobby. For all inquiries, please contact reception (604) 688. 6111.

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