J Duggan and Associates, as Landscape Architects, has been involved in numerous Federal Architecture-Engineering-Land Development Projects over the last few years finding a niche working primarily as a Landscape Architecture subcontractor to larger Architecture and Engineering firms. Our rural location and limited overhead allows us to offer very competitive rates not found in metropolitan areas such as Northern Virginia. We are however available for meetings in the DC region ( 70 miles away), and if need be just about anywhere else through Dulles Airport which is less approx. 1 hour away.
The firm has been in existence for 15 years and has limited debt-so it will be here in the long run. Our small size insures that as it’s principal with over 30 years experience; J. Duggan is involved with every project. There is no delegation to personnel with less experience.
We believe we bring a creative yet realistic perspective to all Federal Architecture and Engineering projects in that our designs benefit from more than twenty-five years of design/build experience. This Construction Management experience has allowed observation of what works and what doesn’t. This helps to insure that the designs presented are realistic and meets budget. Our expertise has also been recognized in that we are asked to be on peer review teams reviewing the Landscape Architecture aspect of various projects throughout the country for the Veteran’s Administration.
Although we can and do handle relatively large projects, we are well suited to handle small items that might be problematic for you and too small to be of interest to other firms. For example- a planting plan that needs to be included on an overall project-or a small outdoor space that needs to be incorporated into a building’s site plan.
Above all, we pride ourselves on being a team player. We pay strict attention to the design program developed, what our responsibilities are, and the timelines created for completion. We have always been on time and under budget and intend to continue doing so. We feel we shine when the team does and it reflects in our work as we have been invited numerous times from the same firms to be a member of their team on such projects.
We offer a complete range of landscape architectural services, including:
- Project Administration
- Site analysis
- Site Design
- Planting Design
- Land use planning
