NSW: How to Start Your Own Landscape Architect Business

Registration for this event is closed

Do you want to start your own landscape architecture business?
 This CPD event is aimed at graduates and practising landscape architects with enough experience and reputation to consider setting up their own landscape architecture business.  


AILA and Fleetwood Urban have partnered to host this workshop Facilitated by Graham Fletcher.

All new businesses have standard procedures for startup.  It is important to know what these are, but it is also important to become a new business owner with your eyes open. This CPD event takes you through a checklist to enable you to understand the why, how, when and where of setting up a new landscape architecture business. 


Detailed information as to what will be covered: 

  • There are three sections - the decision to start a business, starting a new business, and taking over an existing business
  • Sources of advice for the standard legal, financial and administrative necessities of establishing a new business
  • The specific information to be considered for a landscape architecture business

This workshop will be facilitated by Graham Fletcher

Graham is a Fellow of AILA. He started managing landscape architecture businesses in the 1970s and has started his own string of businesses of all sorts since then. None of these businesses went broke. He taught professional practice type subjects at TAFE for 20 years and university for 10, and was Program Director of Landscape Architecture at UNSW. After retiring in 2015, he has been a consultant for a number of universities, and has been involved in volunteer work, including as National Chair for AILA's Education Committee.
