About Chinook Landscape Architecture, Inc.
Chinook Landscape Architecture, Inc. is a Colorado owned landscape architecture firm with a specialization in environmental restoration and open space/trail planning projects. Founded in 2017, Chinook prides itself on working closely with clients to develop unique and creative solutions to complicated projects throughout Colorado. Often, this involves working with emerging technologies and trends such as drone data collection, geo-located public surveys, innovative trail planning, and environmental play. Chinook embraces these technologies and trends, and its founder, Jon Altschuld, regularly presents and teaches at universities, conferences, and trade shows on the subject.
Chinook has built valuable relationships over the past years with local municipalities, CDOT, private clients, engineers, ecologists, surveyors, and universities. Chinook has worked on several major outdoor recreation and trails projects such as the North Fruita Desert (18 Road) Mountain Bike Trails Master Plan in Fruita, the Austin Bluffs Open Spaces and Trails Master Plan in Colorado Springs, and the Three Mile Creek Confluence stream restoration and recreation project in Glenwood Springs. Leading the way for emerging technologies, Chinook is also using drones to collect 3D data of rockfaces along I-70 and other interstates to improve rockfall safety, as well as teaching landscape architecture students about the use of these emerging technologies in the industry.
Through all of these projects, Chinook strives to create stronger connections between people and places, particularly environmentally important ones. As a company, Chinook believes that they have a responsibility as landscape architects to create sustainable designs that allow future generations to continue to enjoy and experience the unique
ecosystems and environments that Colorado has to offer.
