Catherine Berris – Landscape Architect
On June 29, Catherine Berris, our Vancouver office’s Landscape Architect/Planner and cemetery aficionado, visited CBC’s “On the Coast”. She spoke to host Matthew Lazin-Ryder about cemetery trends in general and the recent report presented to the City of Coquitlam on their cemeteries in particular. The key issue is that cemeteries are running out of space and they are looking at how to densify and increase their capacity. The public is also interested in green burial and a more natural approach to the way we end our lives. Catherine has worked with a number of municipal, faith-based and First Nations cemeteries throughout BC and Alberta. Want to know more? Read Catherine’s story.
