The firm honors these employees that share the same passion and drive that elevates their communities, team, and themselves to make their surroundings better. Recipients are nominated by their peers and selected by the Board of Directors.

Trotter has been a Surveyor in the Land Resources group since 2015 and was nominated for the award for her outstanding performance with 3D Laser Scanning on the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital Vertical Expansion Project. This physically and emotionally demanding project involved working through the night to keep patient disruption to a minimum and the use of fall protection harnesses and tethers while providing 3D scanning and layout services for elevator shaft construction.

The contractor’s assessment of Trotter’s performance was a factor in her selection for this award, “Every time Brandy walked on the job, she brought the attitude that you want to see in each individual on-site. There was never a time that I asked Brandy to do something that she didn’t immediately handle it. Throughout her time on-site, her knowledge as a surveyor was on display. Brandy was great to have on this project, and I believe she shows the qualities and knowhow worthy of this award.”

Brown joined the firm in 2005 with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia. His distinguished work as lead designer on the newest section of the Tennessee Riverwalk in Chattanooga was celebrated with this award. Brown is a Registered Landscape Architect in Tennessee and in three other states.

This award celebrates Brown’s achievements on the latest section of the Riverwalk opened in 2016, one of the most difficult and complicated projects undertaken by the firm. Brown overcame a myriad of project routing, land ownership, and funding challenges to keep the project moving forward.

Matt Stovall, Business Unit Director of Land Resources, added, “This award-winning project is a significant accomplishment and will allow us to successfully compete with national design firms. John’s dedicated performance, leadership, creativity, and positive attitude as a Barge Waggoner employee were major contributors to the success of the project.”

In Memoriam of Jon E. Benson, ASLA

Jon Benson jBa Headshot

We mourn the passing of Jon Benson, a well-respected leader in his profession, founder of the landscape architecture firm jB+a, and, most recently, the Client Service Leader for the Atlanta office of Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon, Inc.

Jon was a dynamic leader among his peers. His genuine, caring, and passionate nature was deeply rooted in his planning and landscape architecture practice. His professional experience was diverse, his projects varied and his designs innovative. Nothing captured his passion for landscape architecture more than the ultimate fulfillment of observing people using the spaces that he designed in both expected and unexpected ways.

In 1999, downstairs in his basement office, Jon’s desire to start a planning and landscape architecture practice was born. He set out to surround himself with talented, creative design professionals that excelled at the highest level of client service. Jon made sure that each jB+a client received quality service and a more livable, maintainable and sustainable project long past his time. It was his foresight, toward the end of his life’s journey, to leave his company in caring, capable hands, with the ability to carry on these standards.

It was his career experiences and leadership that uniquely positioned jB+a for success, providing clients across the southeastern United States with responsive service and a lasting impact on the community’s he served. That spirit now lives on through the team at Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon, Inc.

Jon was the winner of an international design competition for the Wilmington 1898 Memorial. Other notable projects include: The National Rose Garden – Washington, DC; Atlanta University Streetscape – Atlanta, Georgia; Olympic Whitewater Venue – Ducktown, Tennessee; One Buckhead Loop – Atlanta, Georgia; Lithonia Lighting Corporate Headquarters – Conyers, Georgia; Dallas Downtown Streetscapes – Dallas, Georgia; Woodruff Library Plaza – Atlanta, Georgia.

Jon’s legacy to the profession and to the larger community will continue to be served through the Benson Family Graduate Student Support Fund. Donations may be sent in memory of Jon directly to Ms. Jennifer Messer at 285 S. Jackson Street, Athens GA. 30602 and are payable to the "UGA Foundation".
