Every year accomplished is an opportunity to reflect on the impact one has made in their career. Moments of growth, fun, and achievement decorate every milestone with gratefulness and appreciation. At AndersonBaron, we have a code of honor and celebrate Tom Durant for his nine years of service. Tom serves the AndersonBaron team as Principal with more than 25 years of experience in the landscape architecture industry that covers a broad range of project design and management. He has a keen understanding of natural processes and the ability to respond to challenges in innovative and creative ways. Tom’s analytical approach to his work broadens the collaborative perspective of our team. His expertise on master-planned communities are invaluable while impacting our client relations with quality customer service that exceeds the bar of expectation. Outside of work, Tom enjoys spending time camping in Northern Arizona, riding at the Imperial Sand Dunes, gardening, and playing with his two rescued Boxer pups.

To shine light even brighter on Tom, we have conducted a fun Q & A consisting of five topics that gives insight into the adventure of his career and what inspires his advocacy of the environment:

Inspiration

I find that my inspiration comes from several aspects including the natural environment, created spaces, music, and the people around me.

 

Creating Community

I believe it takes collaboration to create a community; from designers incorporating their knowledge of design, technology, and experience to providing designs that will adapt to the changing environment we live in. The knowledge and experience I have accumulated over the years have paved the way of my creativity to not only support AndersonBaron’s mantra of creating community but to also be a leader of influence towards innovation.

 

The AndersonBaron Experience

Exciting, Creative, and Educational. These are all reasons I chose landscape architecture for my career. Every project is more challenging, new, and different.

 

Most Memorable Moments

So many to select… from moving offices, being covered in dirt on a UTV ride at an executive retreat (someone had their eyes closed😊), trying to reenact a lightsaber fight for a prize at the Granite Express movie, to playing dodgeball as an adult for one of our teambuilders.

One word…. AndersonBaronDurant or ABD for short!
