A recent blurb in the Daily Journal of Commerce – DJC Oregon entitled ‘Oregon landscape architects capitalize on their green edge‘, which discussed the competitive advantage “Many Oregon landscape architecture firms, however, say they’ve been able to buck the national trend because they have expertise in sustainable design, specifically in regard to stormwater management and green roofs.” These are definitely a couple of niche markets that TERRA.fluxus thrives on – so I appreciate the nice quote in the story from Reed Jackson on some of our recent work, including the recently installed green wall screen for the Washington Medical Center in Oakland – seen below.
As quoted in the article:
“On a smaller scale, TERRA.fluxus, a two-person firm owned by Jason King, has a partnership with a roofing company in California. The firm, which recently designed a green wall for a medical center in Oakland, Calif., and has another project set to start soon in Los Angeles, is able to maintain this partnership because of its innovative work, King said. “When you’re looking at an economic downtown in Portland or Oregon, it isn’t going to affect (landscape architects) as much because they go other places to do that work,” he said. “Being able to go down to California and to offer a lot of the lessons we’ve learned in Oregon is definitely a market niche that helps to get, keep and expand business.”
