Crozier Consulting Engineers would like to congratulate our landscape architect, Mike Hensel, as a recipient of the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects (OALA) Carl Borgstrom Award for Service to the Environment. This well-deserved recognition is awarded to an OALA member “whose practice promotes special or unique contributions to sensitive, sustainable design and use of the environment”.
Mike received the honour for his ongoing land evaluations with First Nation Communities. His efforts have led him to complete Traditional Knowledge Assessments in various Communities where he’s advanced the understanding of effects that projects within Traditional Land Use Areas will have on the associated health, welfare and safety of the potentially affected First Nation Communities . Landscape architecture is a unique service with the opportunity to manage technical and scientific support to identify potential land-use conflicts between First Nations Communities and developments.
Mike has been cited as “making a real and positive change” in the profession and we’re proud to have such an expert within the Crozier team.
