We were established in Central Florida in 1969 by founder, Bert T. Foster.Over the last 50 years, the firm, led by president Richard Conant and vice president Matthew Allen, has adapted to both economic and market needs. Foster Conant has designed projects throughout the southeastern United States and southern Caribbean. Our project portfolio gives us the strong background to understand how to make bold statements with landscape, enhancing functional hardscapes and amenities. The firm, which currently employs nine people, is a blend of seasoned professionals and young emerging talent consisting of two registered principals, associate principal, and three Sr. associate registered landscape architects including one LEED AP, landscape designer, and two office administrators.
Editor's Note: With the ASLA annual meeting and EXPO in Miami canceled this year due to safety concerns amid the COVID-19 health pandemic, LASN still wanted to highlight the landscape architectural work of firms from the southeast region. LASN asked the firms to send us a short biographical profile, plus photography from selected projects, with a brief description of the design work for each project. We let the firms speak for themselves in their profiles and in describing the projects, although some editing was required because of space restraints and not all photography and projects could be included. Thank you, firms of Florida and Alabama for participating!
