For every project, SUFCo brings together an expert team. We match the skills and talents of our flexible teams with the dreams of our clients.
SUFCo is excited to announce that we are now working with a new site designer Craig Skipton.
During his 12-year career as a landscape architect, Craig has worked on a variety of projects and project types. Most recently Craig worked on the design and build of Heyday Farm on Bainbridge Island—a 30-acre working farm on three separate properties. In this work he applied his passion for local food, love of technology, tendency to be highly organized and background in design, project management, soil science and ecosystems. One of his core roles in the start-up process of the farm was to lead the infrastructure design, installation and maintenance that included site drainage, raised-bed gardens, rain gardens and swales.
Listening carefully, creating an engaging design process and empowering people to be creative are ways Craig likes to facilitate the realization of ideas into built works. Craig typically focuses on ways to create productive and easy-to-care-for landscapes while streamlining, reducing or minimizing maintenance by design.
Craig is also an avid beekeeper, including rearing queens; father of two kids; husband; runner; fly fisher; and has been known to, on occasion, dig up a mess of razor clams.
In the end, elegant design solutions that lead to ecologically sound, organized, and productive systems excite Craig. We are excited to welcome him to the team!
