Mike Wood, Senior Associate at Grant Associates, has been elected to the Executive Committee for the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA).
Mike will serve a two-year term on the Executive Committee, which is responsible for overseeing the strategic direction of the non-profit organisation that represents landscape architecture professionals in Singapore.
Grant Associates has been an active member of SILA since the UK headquartered practice formed a Singapore office in 2006 after Grant Associates was appointed lead designer of the city state’s landmark scheme Gardens by the Bay. Grant Associates has gone on to consolidate its reputation in the region and win a range of high profile contracts in Singapore, South East Asia and Australia.
Grant Associates recently relocated to larger offices at Tras Street in Tanjong Pagar – a historic district within Singapore’s Central Business District – to house its growing team.
Mike Wood, Senior Associate at Grant Associates, comments: “Landscape architecture is still very much a developing discipline in Singapore. SILA has done some great work to promote excellence in landscape design and practice, and champion the landscape architect’s role within the wider built environment sector.
“With green infrastructure and large scale public realm projects high on the agenda in Singapore, now is an exciting time for members of the landscape design profession and I’m looking forward to help shape SILA’s positive influence where I can.”
