Partner, Planner, Urban Designer, Associate Landscape Architect



As an urban designer with an education in planning and a passion for landscape architecture, Bruce offers the unique ability to lead design projects through the entire planning process; from high level policy development, conceptual design, community engagement, project management, right through to detailed design and implementation. As a result, he recognizes the importance of communicating design in an accessible, inclusive manner, and developing ideas that are both exciting and implementable.

Bruce has worked on a diverse array of projects, including downtown revitalization plans, waterfront design concepts, urban development plans, active transportation plans, park master plans, and municipal plans. Most recently, Bruce has contributed his design expertise on an urban redevelopment of the Bloomfield Centre in North End Halifax and an upcoming 500 acre, mixed use neighbourhood. His work has been recognized by several planning and design awards including a national award in Neighbourhood Planning from the Canadian Institute of Planning and awards from the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects and the Atlantic Planners Institute.
