Timothy Wood is a 2004 graduate from the University of Georgia and has a bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture. Tim began his career in landscape architecture working for Jordan Jones & Goulding (JJG). He has over six years of experience in the Land Planning Department where he got the opportunity to work on a variety of landscape projects that include Residential, Mixed Use, Golf Course and Recreational concept design to name a few. Notable work that Tim performed at JJG involved the opportunity to be a part of revitalization charrette projects by working with communities to develop a set of guidelines for smart growth. When Gulf Shores was hit by Hurricane Katrina, JJG was hired to work with the local community to develop a set of guidelines they could use to rebuild. Similar work was performed in Columbia, South Carolina and Trinidad.
After struggles in the economy resulted in the loss of Tim’s job, other opportunities later came as a result. Tim was hired on with B+C Studio in 2013 to produce construction documents for a variety of projects around Atlanta and other locations around the south east. Tim joins a staff that is experienced in many areas of landscape architecture that have provided him with invaluable knowledge and exposure for the advancement of his career.
The need of natural landscapes in urban settings is vital for the healthy growth of our communities. My interest in urban design began during my tenure in college while studying the design of urban environments and how we as a people use these spaces. The role of cities has changed over time. More and more people live in the environments with which they work and bringing in more aspects of the natural environment is a necessary and healthy pursuit for future urban development. My interests have focused on finding the balance between our natural and built environment.
Tim loves most any outdoor related activity. When Tim can find the time, he will usually be on a hiking or camping trip with friends. His favorite trails are in the North Georgia Mountains on or around the Appalachian Trail. His definition of camping does not involve pitching a tent 30 feet from where the car is parked, but hiking in a few miles and getting away from the everyday amenities. When Tim isn’t lost deep in the woods, he enjoys the local concert scene, and sporting events that Atlanta has to offer. It’s hard for Tim to pass up good music and great friends. Tim is a Braves and Falcons fan and loves to make it to the games whenever possible. Tim is a proud graduate of The University of Georgia and when he can’t make it to the games he is usually “That Guy” yelling at a television at the local sports bar rooting on his beloved Georgia Bulldogs.
