Landscape Architecture encompasses analysis, planning, design, management and stewardship of the natural and built environments. ORDA has worked with its clients to create some of the most recognizable icons in Landscape Architecture in South Florida. All projects are undertaken with the aim of creating innovative, sustainable environments by implementing the best design ideals in real world situations.
PLANNING + URBAN DESIGN
Master planning involves the creation of new places to live, work and play. ORDA provides master planning design services for residential developments, mixed-use developments, commercial developments, parks, city-wide street tree master planning and the redevelopment of existing facilities. ORDA’s knowledge of urban design and public spaces is vast and varied - as one of South Florida’s longest running landscape architecture and planning firms with thousands of acres of green space and hundreds of miles of streetscapes in our portfolio, we are experts in the design and craft of vibrant public spaces.
ORDA provides construction administration where we observe the progress and the quality of the work performed with the objective of determining whether the work meets the spirit and intent of the project design, technical specifications and construction contract.
PLAN REVIEW + INSPECTIONS
ORDA provides landscape plan review and inspection services for several municipalities as well as the Florida Department of Transportation. We act as an extension of the staff and have enhanced the image and quality of several cities through our knowledge and experience of code requirements as well as sensitive environmental issues associated with Florida’s unique geographical area.
TREE PERMITTING + MITIGATION
Tree Permitting is one of the most important aspects of any site improvement project in south Florida. No project will reach the TCO or CO phase without proper tree permitting and mitigation. ORDA works with local officials to ensure that the proper permits have been obtained early in the development process.
