Littleton, CO, January 8, 2018 – Terracare Associates- TCA, a Monarch Landscape Company is proud to announce it has been awarded an Award of Excellence- Recognition Award by the National Association of Landscape Professionals for the Los Colinas Corporate I & II property.

Los Colinas Corporate I & II, Texas-

Los ColinasLos Colinas Corporate I & II is set on more than seven acres that supports close to 450 employees.  When the current landscape maintenance contractor began servicing the property, the Las Colinas’ new property manager was disappointed with the upkeep and curb appeal of the previous property manager’s style and the lack of ongoing maintenance.  The building management company was concerned that occupancy rates might fall due to the marginal upkeep.  The building needed to attract and retain more tenants.  The new management reached out to the landscape maintenance company with high expectations for maintenance and enhancement work, but they had a limited budget.  The landscape contractor worked closely with the property manager to design a phased plan to meet the budget constraints and exceed the property management company’s expectations.  In addition, the front entrance courtyard was of particular interest to the management team to add a focal point to the entrance of the corporate complex.

Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design projects from around the nation. This year only, 136 awards were bestowed for maintenance, design/build or contracting projects across the United States.

Terracare Wins 2017 Community Stewardship Award

Terracare Associates was awarded the 2017 Community Stewardship Award by the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado for its collaboration with Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment to build outdoor educational spaces.

“One of our core values asGiving back a company is to give back to the communities in which we operate. This is the seventh learning garden we have built and our first garden in Colorado. It has been a great partnership working with the Montclair staff, children and parent volunteers,” says Cristin Tarr, marketing director at Terracare Associates.

TCA began the process of installing a learning garden at the school in early spring of 2016. The six month project included excavation of the garden area, installation of a footpath and planters, and establishment of an extensive irrigation system. In the process of building the garden, TCA contributed more than 300 hours of volunteer labor and thousands of dollars worth of donated time, talent, materials and equipment. The garden features 32 raised planting beds, providing each classroom with its own space to garden. The western edge of the garden has been set aside to grow pumpkins, squash, melons and gourds for use in all classrooms. Beans, peas, grapes and other vine plants are grown on the surrounding fence.

The goal of this project is to provide students with hands-on learning experiences that align with grade level standards while also teaching them new skills and responsibility. The students in each classroom are responsible for making decisions about what to plant and maintaining their sections of the garden throughout the growing season. Montclair took an extra step to keep students engaged and the garden well-maintained by creating a school club called “The Green Paws”. The organization consists of students of all ages and a committee of teachers and parents who participate in activities that support sustainability and the upkeep of the learning garden.Giving back

“Terracare Associates made our dreams of creating an outdoor classroom garden space a reality. The professional support from their design team, community outreach, and labor was above and beyond our hopes for the project. We have been able to tie in lessons from the classroom to the gardens for each of our grade levels which impacts each of our 400 students,” said Heather Manone, enrichment coordinator for Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment.

Terracare is proud to work with Montclair to provide students with hands-on learning experiences that help them grow in the classroom and beyond.

The City of Centennial Public Works Department Earns Accreditation

Centennial-SignIn 2008, the City of Centennial launched a large-scale public private partnership with CH2M, and Terracare Associates was selected as a subcontractor to perform comprehensive public works maintenance for the city. Of the almost 40,000 municipalities, townships and county governments in the U.S., Centennial’s public works department became the 119th accredited public works agency and the first public-private partnership public works agency in the U.S.

The maintenance Terracare Associates provides includes street maintenance, sign maintenance and installation, snow removal, tree maintenance and removal, traffic signal maintenance, erosion control, street sweeping, trash and debris removal, and maintenance of the award-winning Centennial Center Park.

“It is a real honor to be a contributor to this accreditation. I could not be more proud of our team working every day to ensure the citizens of Centennial are safe and the city looks its best,” said Justin Stewart, Vice President of Public Infrastructure for Terracare Associates.

The accreditation process is no easy feat. There are 40 chapters and 608 sub-chapters in the accreditation process in public works, 360 of those applicable to Centennial. CH2M and the city wanted to demonstrate that the city was compliant with the accreditation requirements for each applicable sub-chapter. To do so, they provided documentation of city policies backed up by actual processes and associated work proofs related to each individual accreditation service area.

“This is a milestone for our city. Meeting the criteria for this accreditation confirms we have been moving in the right direction since the city was formed,” said Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon.

The accreditation program aims to promote self-improvement within an organization; offer an evaluation and education program; recognize exemplary performance; improve public works performance and delivery of services; increase professionalism; and instill pride among agency staff, elected officials and the local community.
