Top executive: Ann Cutner, principal
A landscape architecture and master-planning firm, ima has worked on a significant number of projects that carry the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, including many on the UC Irvine campus. The company served as project manager for a LEED Platinum award-winning project, the Inland Empire Utilities Agency Headquarters in Chino, which also won the Governor’s Award for Energy and the Environment. The firm prides itself on offering sustainable solutions that are also practical, offering its clients cost-saving solutions by managing storm water, minimizing water consumption through high-efficiency irrigation and plant selection, and preserving natural habitats.
“Landscape architecture is inherently a nurturing discipline that respects nature and natural systems,” says Ann Cutner, principle of ima. “We are committed to healthy environments where people and nature co-exist and thrive, and we pursue those sustainable options that embrace natural and organic solutions for balancing growth and commerce.”
