Our clients and partners choose Secter Environmental Design because of our industry-leading expertise and because they know that they will play an important role in setting and developing program goals through the Charrette process. We approach projects from a comprehensive point of view, and link multiple goals and disciplines. Most importantly, our planning work leads to strategies that help organize the implementation of the projects to create the best possible results. We take the results of the Charrette process and apply them to our environmental planning, landscape design, visual assessment, and ecological restoration expertise to create an end product that is precisely what the client or community is looking for.

Our goal is to understand and articulate the essence and function of place, and the role of citizens in community design and ecological planning. SED encourages a collaborative setting in which clients can explore their relationships with home (where they came from), place (where they are currently), and environment (the setting in which they are interfacing).

What makes SED different is that we involve the client in the process from the beginning. We help to articulate their goals and site program agenda through developing clear and concise criteria that support the direction of their project, and solve problems related to the site.

Secter Environmental Design is a group of professionals that utilizes a team approach to support its projects. Our group is made up of graphic designers, landscape architects, community development specialist, architects, civil and structural engineers, and environmental specialists.

Jordan Secter founded Secter Environmental Design (SED) to provide landscape design and planning services that contribute to the aesthetics, function and sustainability of site and area ecology. SED uses a collaborative process to bridge conservation and recreation program development though environmental planning, ecological restoration, natural area facilities design, natural play and interpretive planning, and design. Jordan has worked with public and private clients in Canada and the United States, and whether he is working on a small site with a single client, groups of children in a schoolyard, or in a watershed with multiple stakeholders, SED encourages a collaborative process through which people can participate in exploring their relationships to the landscape.
