LANARC - Intermediate Landscape Architect

LANARC is seeking great people to join our team. At Lanarc, we connect design, planning, and community engagement to help prepare our communities for their future. For 30+ years, Lanarc has been pushing the boundaries of the landscape architecture profession in BC. We are a boutique firm known for uncompromising quality and forward-thinking work. We are intentional about hiring people who are curious and driven and offer unique opportunities for career growth based out of offices in Nanaimo, Vancouver, and Victoria.


  • We are an established boutique firm led by professionals with 30+ years of experience. We are located on Vancouver Island and in the Lower Mainland.
  • We work with fantastic public and private sector clients who share our goals for creating sustainable and resilient communities. Our clients keep coming back for thoughtful help.
  • We specialize in landscape architecture, planning, and community engagement projects and undertake work that spans all scales – from helping a community envision their 20-year future to collaborating with contractors to get a playground into the ground. We love variety and challenge.
  • We make engagement a hallmark of our work. We believe that effective community participation promotes understanding and recognizes citizens' needs to be part of the decisions that affect their lives.
  • Our work is diverse and not private development driven.
  • We are intentional about who we hire – always working to build and maintain a team that is collaborative, creative, and kind.


  • Is a capable project manager – confident at leading projects, works with clients to them help reach their goals, and manages project budgets.
  • Has excellent design and communication skills – creates site-sensitive design approaches and figures out what to say and how to say it with words and graphics so that everyone understands.
  • Has a strong technical skillset – leads development of interdisciplinary AutoCAD drawing sets and oversees projects from conceptual design through detailed design and construction-related services.
  • Understands community engagement – helps to weave engagement into design and planning, creates materials that are engaging and fun, and facilitates inclusive dialogue with understanding and empathy.
  • Excels at critical thinking and problem solving – embraces that our work at Lanarc is rarely ‘cookie-cutter’, each of our projects is unique, and our work spans the realms of design, planning, and community engagement.


  • Computer Skills: Adobe Creative Suite, MS Office 365, and AutoCAD. Sketchup, Twinmotion, Lumion, Vectorworks, or other 3D Visualization Software skills are an asset.
  • People Skills: Confidence and an ability to work well with others. We value our team relationships and are looking to add people who contribute to a positive, friendly atmosphere.


  • While our projects take us throughout BC and beyond, we are seeking to add to our main location in Nanaimo. The downtown Nanaimo office location offers views over the harbour and easy access from across the city. We believe that Nanaimo is one of the best places to call home – and we’re proud to be part of making it an even better place for the future.
  • We also have offices in Vancouver and Victoria.
