There are some basic things to know when considering an architect’s landscape portfolio.1.
They’re usually looking for a full-time position that pays $100,000-$150,000 per annum, but can also include a part-time work arrangement that pays a few hundred dollars per hour.2.
The landscape architect has to be comfortable with a wide range of environmental and social responsibilities, as well as having a passion for the subject matter.3.
Most landscape architects also want to have experience in the architecture industry, but some may prefer a more traditional field of study.4.
Most landscape architects prefer a fixed-term arrangement, so it’s often best to pick one that’s shorter than the number of years that the architect has been in the field.5.
Most work in a professional setting, and most do not expect to be involved with the cityscape for years.
But some of the most prestigious landscape architecture companies in Australia, including the architects of the Adelaide Hills, are looking for landscape architects to help them grow their client base.
As part of the new Sustainable Australia initiative, Landscape Architects and Landscape Designers (LAD) has been working with the City of Adelaide to improve its landscape portfolio to be a more sustainable, environmentally friendly workplace for its workforce.
The city is offering a number of incentives to encourage landscape architects and landscape designers to join its workforce to be able to be more sustainable.
Landscape Architects can now be recognised by their company as the most environmentally friendly industry in the city, and can also receive up to $10,000 a year in government grants.
The City of South Australia also has a new Landscape Architect Grant Program, which aims to reward landscape architects who have the highest environmental and sustainability scores.
The Landscape Landscape Association of Australia also recently released the first-ever Landscape Building Certificates and a series of Sustainable Building Certifications to help landscape architects achieve the Sustainable Landscape Builder Certification.
“The Landscapes Landscaping Association of Australasia is committed to building a more greener future for Australia’s landscape, and to supporting and rewarding those who have taken the next step and are delivering great results for our landscape,” CEO John Rafferty said.
“Landscape Landscapers have a unique position in the landscape landscape sector, with a broad range of experience and knowledge of landscape architecture and design, and their work has been recognised as one of the highest in Australia by the Landscape Industry Association of SA.”
“The industry is growing rapidly and we are confident that this program will help us build a sustainable landscape in the future, and will provide a great incentive for the industry to grow and prosper.”
Landscape architects and landscape designers are also recognised for their efforts to improve the environment.
The State Government recently announced a $4 million investment to build green-tech buildings in the Adelaide CBD, and Landscape Architects will receive $250,000 for their work.
The Adelaide Hills Landscape Council has also announced it will spend $100 million to invest in green buildings in South Australia, and a further $300,000 in 2020 to help the city’s landscape.
“It is important to realise that the landscape architect position is highly coveted and the demand for this role is high, so we will continue to provide the most sustainable and sustainable environment for our environment for the next five to ten years,” LAD CEO John Crouch said.
