In 2005, Chris Sears, a Registered Landscape Architect, established Sears, Smith and Associates, Inc. (SS&A), a full-service, Atlanta-based Landscape Architecture firm providing the analysis, planning, design, management and stewardship of the natural and built environments. Since then, SS&A has been creating thoughtful and sustainable designs for its clients’ outdoor spaces ranging from mixed-use and commercial landscaping, to stunning private, residential backyard makeovers and golf course communities.
Understanding the need for a seamless option for the implementation and installation of these designs, Chris and his wife, Amy, then established A&C Development, Inc., as a general landscape contractor. SS&A and A&C are separate companies but owned by the same management. Clients of both firms enjoy the benefits of a design-build delivery and this separation allows for competitive installation proposals, and clearer contractual and professional responsibilities of the architect and contractor.
We will deliver your vision into reality! We strive to overcome any challenge whether they are limiting site constraints, aggressive schedules or an ambitious design.
A&C’s knowledgeable staff has unmatched project and site supervisory expertise with over 75 years of combined construction experience. Our staff credentials include a Registered Landscape Architect, LEED Accredited Professional, ARCSA AP, GA Licensed General Contractor, GSWCC Certification, and more!
