Landscape Architect - Senior Partner

As founding partner, Kevin has nearly forty years experience as a planner and landscape architect. Kevin's design works include parks and recreation, urban environments, educational campuses, cultural facilities, resort planning, medical complexes, commercial developments and residential communities. Kevin is a graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture. He is licensed in Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida. As past President of the Indiana Chapter for Association of Landscape Architects, Kevin is active in promoting the profession and mentoring landscape architectural students at both Ball State and Purdue University

After graduating from college in 1974, Kevin joined the internationally known firm of Edward D. Stone, Jr. & Associates in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It was during this time that Kevin gained exposure to large-scale land use planning projects throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Europe, Iran and Saudi Arabia.

In 1980, Kevin moved to Knoxville, Tennessee where he joined the firm of Oliphant and Associates, Planners and Landscape Architects. While with the firm, Kevin spearheaded two major projects; the US Pavilion for the 1982 Word's Fair in Knoxville, and the new Corporate Headquarters for TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Both projects became major catalysts for urban renewal within each city's central business district.

In 1983, Kevin left the design profession to join Fairfield Communities, a developer and management company of resort projects throughout the United States. While serving as Vice President of Project Development, Kevin oversaw the design, planning and construction of condominiums, single-family subdivisions, golf courses, clubhouse facilities, restaurants, marinas, roadways and other site improvement projects for 12 resort communities throughout the United States. In 1990, Kevin returned to Indiana to start a private planning and landscape architectural practice. Initially known as McCrory and Associates, the firm was restructured in 1999 and renamed the LandPlan Group.
