Professional Development and Personal Growth

At KW, we are deeply committed to creating a culture that fosters the professional development and personal growth of every team member. Our approach revolves around nurturing the unique talents and interests of each individual through open communication and collaboration. We actively encourage participation in industry organizations, and attending relevant events because we are committed to being on the leading edge of landscape architecture. This commitment allows team members to expand their knowledge, network with professionals, and bring valuable insights back to the organization. To foster unity and knowledge sharing, we have implemented company-wide initiatives such as the Virtual Breakfast Tacos teams chat, team-building activities, virtual fireside chats, and an annual townhall event. These transparent initiatives serve to ensure that every office remains connected and well-informed. By providing these opportunities, we strive to cultivate an environment where our team members feel genuinely valued, motivated, and inspired to continue Building the Exceptional, Together.

 

Established in 2016

The KW Caricature

Caricatures highlight your most prominent features the same way a landscape architect works to design an outdoor space. Each line a landscape architect draws is unique and flows with the land’s topography to create a final design plan, just as the lines of a caricature drawing flow together to illustrate the person’s uniqueness.  

KW prides itself on creating a culture of imagination and ingenuity. The caricature drawings celebrate growth and welcomes each of our new employees into the KW culture. 

Transparent Communication

Trusting Relationships Provide the Foundation for Innovation

In the realm of Landscape Architecture, we excel in filling in the blanks to craft a seamless design experience. Our commitment extends to shaping functional spaces that not only encourage connections within the community but also contribute to the realization of our clients’ objectives. Your experience and overarching vision matter to us, driving our dedication to collaborative efforts in creating something truly remarkable.
