Firma Design Group (FDG) recently acquired the planning and landscape architecture firm of Ralph J. Alexander & Associates (RJA&A) of Novato, California. Mr. Alexander was a renowned landscape architect, working on countless important projects throughout California and Nevada over the past 38 years. Michael Cook, Vice President at FDG, had the privilege of working for Ralph from 2001-2006.
FDG is a multi-disciplinary firm that provides a full range of Planning, Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture design services to public and private clients. We have in-depth experience with a wide range of project focuses from streetscapes, downtown redevelopment, urban and rural parks, mixed-use commercial/residential, high density and single family residential developments, custom homes and much more. And, with the addition of RJA&A’s portfolio of projects over the past 35 years, we are even more suited to assist our clients, private and public.
FDG hired RJA&A’s long time employees, including Carolyn Kintzley, who is now our Office Manager, in order to assist with the transition and with hands-on knowledge of Ralph’s projects.
Ralph J. Alexander passed away on October 7, 2011, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Ralph worked up until the last minute and was dedicated to his business and clients, Firma Design Group is honored to have acquired the firm from Mr. Alexander’s family.
