Lombard North Group is a multidisciplinary landscape architecture firm based in Calgary. The firm was originally founded in 1966 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, by Cameron Man, James R. Taylor, and Claude Muret. Man, Taylor, Muret Landscape Architects soon merged with an alliance of firms under the name Lombard North Planning, a reference to the Lombard Avenue offices where meetings were often held. Cameron Man left the firm in 1972 to go onto a distinguished career in landscape architecture education in Canada and the United States. The Lombard North Group name started to be used in 1973. The head office eventually moved to Calgary in 1975 when the bulk of the projects had shifted west from Manitoba to Alberta. Douglas D. Paterson, who had joined the firm in 1969, was senior design planner at LNG for much of the 1970s. He left the firm when the Winnipeg office closed in 1977. The Calgary office eventually incorporated as an Alberta landscape architecture firm in 1980 under the name Lombard North Group (1980) Ltd., following a restructuring of the company. Golfplan Associates was eventually formed in 1984 as a subsidiary of LNG in the field of golf course architecture, land use, and resort planning. In the 1990s Doug Thomson joined the firm and later became president and principal designer at LNG. Over the course of LNG’s more than five decades of work the firm has won numerous awards and was one the largest landscape architecture firms in Canada.
