What's Springing Up At GreenWorks?

This year has us cultivating more connections than ever before—that's why we’re launching our first quarterly newsletter!


We’re excited to introduce SITES, a new framework from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) that complements LEED projects with comprehensive landscape and site design.

With Jason King on our team, we’re the first firm in Oregon to offer this expertise to our clients. GreenWorks has been a leader in resilient design and sustainable landscape architecture since our founding in 1987. Adding SITES to our toolkit reaffirms our commitment to sustainability and ensures our processes fit the needs of our communities and environment.

Nadja Quiroz is a recent graduate of University of Oregon’s Master of Landscape Architecture program. She has an interdisciplinary background in ecology and environmental issues. Her work is driven by a curiosity for what influences our relationship to the environment, and a desire to repair that relationship.

The Oak Harbor Clean Water Facility, a project GreenWorks collaborated on with MWA Architects and GeoEngineers, has been named Project of the Year by the Washington State Chapter of the American Public Works Association.

“The key here is advancement in wastewater treatment technology that allows communities to place these facilities in places that, before now, were out of bounds.” —Gill Williams, GreenWorks Principal
