The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) requires all contractors including architectural consultants, engineering consultants, construction contractors, and other firms that provide specialty services to be prequalified before they can propose any work.
A landscape architect who is GDOT prequalified has the knowledge and training needed to create complete landscape plans any job, large or small. They are skilled in designing, planning, and implementing landscape plans that meet city code, so you don’t have to worry about that yourself.
These agencies must pass strict GDOT prequalification guidelines, fill out the necessary forms, and be certified to bid on projects. Adhering to these guidelines is an essential part of what we do to ensure we’re qualified to do the job safely and efficiently.
Being GDOT prequalified means that we meet all the requirements of the state and can provide the highest quality work. In working for the state, we’re also working for you, so we’re experts in complying with safety regulations and other important laws. Not only can we do beautiful work, but we also have the training and skill to do it right.
Hiring a GDOT Prequalified Landscape Architect
The same qualifications that helped us pass GDOT prequalification can translate to your landscaping as well. A proven track record of designing and implementing landscaping plans, including plans to treat and prevent erosion and poor drainage, gives you the confidence you need to hire a GDOT prequalified landscape architect. This experience ensures that your landscape not only looks beautiful but functions like it should to stay beautiful.
You should feel confident in who you hire to do your job. That’s why ensuring that the landscape architect you hire has a GDOT prequalification is crucial. You know by hiring someone of this caliber that they are trained to handle any job and that they will take the responsibility seriously.
A GDOT prequalified landscaper works to a higher standard than all others. Always remember that even when tackling small projects, such as ponds, patios, or firepits, there are still plenty of safety concerns to think about, and they have the knowledge needed to do the job right.
A GDOT prequalified landscape architect can also provide trustworthy consultations and professional opinions. Before beginning work on your landscape, they can help you determine what problems you may have, what needs improvement, and what’s working well in your landscape. Whether you’re looking for some small changes or a major overhaul, they’ll know where to start and how to handle it.
Being GDOT prequalified doesn’t mean a landscape architect can only work for the state. It means they’re qualified in your state to perform all your landscape design needs. They are specially trained and certified in the local ordinances and know more about the soil and local plantings than anyone else. They can use this knowledge to plan any job safely and effectively.
