Growing the Firm
Congratulations to Heth Kendrick, PLA on his promotion to Partner at LandDesign! Joining the firm in 2001, Heth has embodied every quality of a LandDesigner throughout his career. Inspired by his entrepreneurial spirit, the firm recognized Heth as the right leader to grow our Dallas office and build a local landscape architecture practice. Heth’s dedication to advancing our practice and client experience has positioned LandDesign as the go-to firm to support developers and architects navigating the region’s unprecedented growth. Heth’s passion for our culture has inspired an office full of creative energy that continues to attract top talent. As a Partner, Heth will become the newest member of our firmwide board of directors.
Congratulations to Dan Melvin, PE on his promotion to Principal! Dan is an excellent example of why we value mentorship in the work. Joining the firm in 2015, Dan quickly advanced from a designer to managing a studio of civil engineers focused on public and private development and infrastructure improvement projects. Dan is a valuable resource to his clients, bridging the gap between their development goals and infrastructure challenges through innovative and feasible solutions. As a Principal, Dan will be part of a group dedicated to advancing our practice and mentoring the next generation of leaders.
