The Urban Planning and Landscape Design Industry


The Urban Planning and Landscape Design Industry are two separate industries with many similarities connecting the two together. Urban planners conduct meetings with public officials or with land developers in the local community on a daily basis. At meetings, they discuss potential ways of using the land for different purposes depending on what their client desires. They research the consensus and any environmental or economic data to see if the land is capable for intended use. If the land is deemed as appropriate, the urban planner will take it a step further by choosing a few site plans, after which they will present their findings to planning officials.


Landscape designers are similar to urban planners in that they both use their creativity to help them perform their jobs. Their job description includes having regular meetings with their clients to speak about how their clients want to design outdoor areas of land such as parks, campuses, homes or businesses. To do this they mainly use computer programs to help them with designs such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD), SketchUp or Adobe Creative Apps. CAD has been used by landscape designers for many years since it is useful for creating detailed drawings online. SketchUp is another great way to make designs because it allows designers to see their creations in 3-D. These programs allow landscape designers to create and prepare realistic models for their clients . It also enables designers to showcase their work in presentations more clearly.


Furthermore, urban planners and landscape designers are similar in their educational requirements. While both require a bachelor’s degree, an urban planner must obtain a master’s degree as well. Unlike urban planners, landscape designers are required to have a license to work in the United States. Out of the entire United States, New Jersey is the only state that mandates urban planners to have a license to work.


Being in this field of work ensures that urban planners and landscape designers will have to meet face to face with other people on a regular basis. They spend much of their time working with others, so it is important that the other tools they use be accounted for as well. After showing a plan to a client, there are bound to be things that the client will want to add or delete. There is not enough time to re-do things so easily on a computer, so urban planners and landscape designers must keep trace paper, sketchbooks, colored pens and markers on them at all times. Colors are important as they are needed to differentiate between certain details on designs. Pencils, markers and pens specially made for designers are typically expensive to buy, but expensive ones usually indicate better quality. Scales are another example of what designers should keep in hand.


While urban planners and landscape designers use similar tools in their work, there are some differences between the two. In comparison, urban planners have a higher salary and a quicker increase in job growth for the next few years. On the other hand, the job outlook for landscape designers over the next few years is expected to grow at a normal rate. Landscape designers have a lower salary compared to urban planners because they go through less schooling. At the very least, these two jobs will be needed in the future since the need for planning is always imminent. The world is in need for plans to be designed in order to manage the safety of the public and help the environment

The Commercial and Institutional School Construction Industry

Commercial and institutional buildings are the most common types of construction seen and used by the public. The terms “commercial” and “institutional” refer to organizations or establishments that are formed for religious, social, educational, or other similar purposes. This form of construction serves to create buildings for public use, such as churches, banks or schools. The construction of schools may be considered as one of the most important types of public institutions since they are of particular interest to governments, communities, and corporations, as education has become a crucial element for success. Schools provide early childhood, primary, secondary, and higher education opportunities, which in turn provide the necessary skills required to join the workforce.

Due to the importance of education, several hundred thousand public and private school buildings have been constructed all across North America, with millions of students in attendance every year. In the US, large cities tend to have the highest amount of schools; these cities include Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, and New York City, NY, among several others. The school construction market continues to climb as cities and suburban areas continue to grow in geographical and population size and must make education more accessible to the public.

School construction varies for each building, as it must meet the community’s needs for which it is created. For example, some residential areas are spread out and have smaller population sizes, while some areas are more densely populated and have lower amounts of space available for construction. This also applies to the types of materials needed, based on certain factors like the environment, city standards, or budget restrictions.

Construction typically requires builders to form lists of materials, which vary in quality, price and quantity. Commercial and institutional construction requires large order capabilities, which now involve GPS delivery and high-tech operating systems to process large orders and move materials. To begin the process of building commercial or institutional schools, school boards, school districts, and city planners must prepare contracts that discuss matters such as site security, environmental and noise control, workers’ hours, necessary materials, and deliveries. Once the materials have been decided on, the party responsible for overseeing the construction process may contact special construction supply facilities, that typically make on-site deliveries. Construction also involves a significant amount of both natural and synthetic materials, such as wood, steel, clay, bricks, rocks, plastics, glass, and cement, which may or may not be used depending on their cost, quality, or effectiveness in the type of building being made. Construction supply facilities keep their materials in large enclosed areas like warehouses, in which workers must keep track of inventory and use large, strong moving equipment for the large amounts of heavy, raw materials being ordered. The types of equipment involved in this process often include utility carts, forklifts, and delivery trucks, which are used to lift and move these heavy materials.

To work in this field, employees typically are not required to have any formal education and instead, go through on-the-job training. However, it may be beneficial to attend a trade school or begin an apprenticeship first. Construction work is very physically taxing, dangerous, and difficult. Given the complex nature of commercial and institutional construction, workers often need special certifications or licenses to perform certain tasks, such as rigging, scaffolding, or welding.

Commercial and institutional construction is very complex and includes a very broad range of assets that must be tracked during the ordering process. Each asset in this industry is crucial to the construction of these buildings, providing them with a good foundation, and meeting the standards for the specific type of building and environmental regulations. There are several different facilities or plots of land that house different kinds of raw materials, such as glass, metals, chemicals, woods, etc., often depending on the storage conditions these materials may require.
