“Matt is a very conscientious and focused individual. He continually uses his strong communications skills to coordinate with clients and project team members throughout the design process. He excels in the construction administration phase of projects where he provides concise and thorough review of all aspects of project construction. Matt also understands the importance of mentoring and continually sharing the knowledge he has gained during his career with junior staff,” says Chris Garrity, GTP Principal.
Gary Schneider, RLA has been promoted to Project Site Designer. Gary recently received certification as a Registered Landscape Architect. He is a graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture and has more than six years of experience.

Gary’s strengths are construction documentation and planting design.
Chris Garrity, GTP Principal emulates that “Gary’s attention to detail is tremendous and proves to be an excellent asset during his preparation of construction documents. His clear, concise communication with clients, project team members and consultants enable him to work through problem solving situations efficiently and effectively. Gary’s knowledge of software and technology allows him to quickly create plans, graphics, and renderings to accurately depict the various design projects happening in the office.”
