Jon McNamara joins BCRA as new Landscape Architecture Lead

SEATTLE, Washington – September 12, 2016 – Jon McNamara has joined BCRA as the new Landscape Architecture Lead and brings over 17 years of experience in urban design, master planning, K-12 and college campuses, sports fields, and mixed-use developments.
Previously, Jon held positions at The Portico Group and Weisman Design Group and his most recent work was Project Manager on the African Adventure exhibit at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. This project allows zoo visitors to explore the 12-acre savanna habitat and experience the diversity of life found within the Serengeti and Tarangire National Parks of Eastern Africa. From concept development to construction documentation, Jon managed and helped create the most authentic experience of an African Safari Lodge and reserve in a North American zoo.
A Wisconsin native, Jon is a University of Wisconsin alum, having earned a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture. He moved to Washington in 2000 and is inspired by the unique geographic setting and abundant connections to nature found in the Northwest. This inspiration is evident in many of his past projects and continues to influence his current work.
Jon is enthusiastic about his new position at BCRA and the opportunity to work with a collaborative and integrated team. “BCRA’s interdisciplinary design approach is what really attracted me to the office. Having multiple disciplines under one roof and the ability to develop fully integrated design solutions is something that every designer strives for. I feel that my past work experience will be a great fit for the BCRA team and the market sectors we work within.”
