Landscape Architecture & Planning
Ecora’s Landscape Architecture team creates unique and engaging landscapes by considering both individual site features and client needs.
Collaboration on every project, with the client, architect, developer, and our own civil, structural, and geotechnical engineering teams, is encouraged, to empower the design and full vision in terms of the finished landscape.
As Manager of the Landscape Architecture and Planning studio in our Kelowna office, Byron Douglas (MBCSLA, CSLA) brings over 15 years of international landscape architectural and project management experience to his role.

Byron has been involved in private sector, municipal and provincial projects throughout the Okanagan and British Columbia, South and Southern Africa, West Africa, Indian Ocean Islands, UAE, China and the United Kingdom.
“The ultimate goal” says Byron “is the realization of memorable, interactive landscapes which are relaxing, beautiful, all the while promoting healthy environments for people and wildlife”
