Three Sixty Design, a Denver landscape architecture firm specializing in site planning and sustainable and urban design, has received Minority/Women and/or Disadvantaged Business (M/WBE/DBE) certification. In addition to the certification, Three Sixty Design was designated as an As-Needed Services firm for the Office of the State of Architect.
Currently, only eight landscape architecture firms in Colorado are designated with a W/S/DBE certification, and “only a few of those have the experience and capacity to do larger public or development projects,” Courtney McRickard, Three Sixty Design principal, said. “Although the economy has hit many architecture and landscape architecture firms, it has actually been beneficial for us. We are now in the position to compete against the larger firms while still providing cost effective design services.”
