The Landscape Project Crew works closely with University Landscape Architects and Project Managers in the Office of the University Architect to implement landscape designs on campus. This crew includes arborists, irrigation specialists, landscape specialists, a stone mason, and a plant pesticide application specialist. This team of professionals also deploys as a Quick Response Team when necessary to address grounds maintenance issues in support of the landscape and turf maintenance crews.
Purdue benefits in several ways by having a landscape project crew. First, the administrative duties required for establishing bid specifications and conducting labor-intensive landscape inspections are avoided. Secondly, since the project crew is comprised of landscape professionals with years of Purdue experience there are open lines of communication with Project Managers and Landscape Architects throughout the lifespan of the project. This results in a higher quality project in the end.
