News from NLALA – 2013 Pearl Awards for Urban Design and Gardens


The Pearl Awards for Urban Design is a program launched by the City of Mount Pearl in 2005 with several key objectives: to promote excellence in Urban Design in the City of Mount Pearl, to enhance the quality of life and aesthetics in the City through architectural and landscape architectural design, to advance environmental stewardship and innovative sustainable design, and to recognize the designers, developers, and property owners who have achieved success in urban design projects in Mount Pearl.

The program is now in its 9th year, and since its inception, the City of Mount Pearl has partnered with the Newfoundland & Labrador Association of Landscape Architects (NLALA), the Atlantic Planners Institute (API – NL Branch) and the Newfoundland & Labrador Association of Architects (NAA). Each year a member of (formerly) NLALA, and now since this year APALA, has volunteered to represent the organization on the urban design jury. Neil Dawe of Tract Consulting Inc. was the 2013 representative reviewing the nominations, and recommending 1 Award of Excellence for Urban Design (Schlumberger Canada Ltd. – 2 Panther Place – Mount Pearl). The awards ceremony took place on November 7, 2013.

A big thank you to Neil Dawe for participating in this valuable initiative that is promoting and celebrating excellence in urban design.
