Phillip is experienced in a variety of projects, all integral to the communities which he serves. Whether he’s designing for a master plan or park rehabilitation, whether the park is an urban space or a sports field, whether the site is institutional or public, Phillip listens to clients and users alike, reflecting their needs and desires in his work.
One of Phillip’s most rewarding projects, Sydney Tar Ponds, exemplifies his commitment to designing for the community. This 250-acre park on one of Canada’s most contaminated sites opened access from nearby neighborhoods, has over four kilometers (2.4 miles) of multi-use paths, and delivered scenic walks via two pedestrian bridges. Also included are waterfront access, baseball and football fields, outdoor performance areas, an adventure playground, and 80 acres of wildlife habitat. All of this was achieved by constructing foundations, utilities, and landscape elements within newly placed soils on top of the capped site.
