Introducing Seferian Design Group
A message from Seferian Design Group:
This project has an opportunity to clearly illustrate how the Town of Grimsby is contributing to healthy ecosystems and climate resiliency. The park can design with nature, which leads to more resilient solutions that also improve community health, safety, and well-being over the long term. There is an abundance of walking trails, native plantings, pollinators, support for local ecosystems, and increased biodiversity. This is an opportunity to rethink how we design, to do more with less.
Design is dynamic, and our work is always influenced by a holistic vision. Our team pushes boundaries and seeks the most creative design solutions as we have learnt over our history that our clients expect fresh and unique ideas. We understand that each project requires a balance between fiscal, pragmatic, and inspired realities. Therefore, each project constraint becomes a starting point for innovative design ideas. Our design process is always inspired by the project context, and we will combine a blend of discovery, budget, and place-making to produce a Casablanca Waterfront Park which is sustainable, educational, and fully engaged in the community. Good design makes a difference! On behalf of our entire team we are truly honoured to be part of the redevelopment of this incredible park space.
A message from the Town:
The Seferian Design Group has assembled a highly qualified team; they were established in 1992 and are an award-winning landscape architectural firm based in Burlington. The Seferian team welcomes the opportunity to design and implement a vision of our new waterfront park with input from staff, council and residents.
Some of their successful projects were for the City of Waterloo redeveloping the 6.9 hectare Waterloo Park. They were also part of the team that successfully restored over 500 metres of Lake Ontario shoreline at the Appleby College in Oakville. Their experience also encompasses recreational trails, parks, town squares and Master Plan Development. They have worked with towns and cities such as Guelph, Oakville, Hamilton, Smithville, Collingwood, Owen Sound and Burlington.
Moving this project another step forward will be exciting for the community and for the Town of Grimsby. It will provide a fantastic enhancement to the parks system and provide much-desired access to the Lake Ontario waterfront.
