Lucia is a Lincoln University BLA graduate operating at an intermediate level based on her experience and track record combined with her a strong background in amenity horticulture and landscape construction. Having completed apprenticeships in the field before commencing her bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture at Lincoln University has enabled Lucia to apply practical, real world considerations to her design work to ensure the longevity of a concept is equally matched by withstanding the impact of maintenance. She also has experience in the private sector as a garden designer and consultant.
As GCC’s Graduate Landscape Architect, Lucia is passionate about strengthening people’s relationships with the outdoor environment, which fulfils GCCs commitment to ensuring ‘form follows function’ through design.
Projects Lucia has worked on include planting specification, concept development and visioning for sites with cultural significance (Puketoromiro Pa, Te Ahui Pa), residential garden design, subdivision landscape plans, Master planning (Mangahao recreation RMP), feasibility, scoping, project estimates and assessments, and wayfinding signage. Lucia uses Microsoft Project for project management and GCC possesses full licensing and hardware for design and project management tasks.
