Merry Christmas From All Of Us At DC+A


As 2014 comes to a close we would like to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude to our many clients, friends and associates for making the past year a wonderful success.  There is no doubt that the past several years have been difficult for many in the design and development industry.   We are very thankful for our many clients who continued to provide us with challenging design opportunities when few were available in the market.  We are humbled by their trust and commitment to the firm.  In 2014 saw a rebound in the market that allowed us to grow our staff with more creative talent and increased project management capability.  Today as we look towards the future, DC+A is better positioned to meet the growing demand for Landscape Architecture, Planning and Urban Design services.  We look forward to serving you with creative, thoughtful design solutions that reflect years of real world experience and knowledge.  Thank you.

No Shave November

November has come to a close, but our beards live on!

Taylor, John, and Tony participated in this year’s #NoShaveNovember for David Conner + Associates. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow cancer awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild. Then, donate the money saved in razor blades to the No-Shave Organization, which uses those donations for cancer education and prevention, helping cancer patients fight the battle.

Although they achieved various degrees of beard success (sorry Taylor), they were able to save more than expected, and to make their success even better, David Conner generously doubled the amount!
