Cameron McCarthy

Cameron McCarthy is a 20-member landscape architecture, planning, and urban design firm located in Eugene, Oregon. Our work includes a wide variety of projects for both private and public sector clients.

The firm’s roots can be traced back to a private practice formed in 1952 by Wallace “Mac” Ruff, a renowned landscape architecture professor at the University of Oregon. Over the past five decades, the firm has gone through a handful of carefully managed transitions. Today, the partnership is under the direction of Larry Gilbert, Matthew Scheibe, Matthew Koehler and Colin McArthur.

Our medium-sized firm, experienced personnel, and stable (long-term) staff are instrumental to our repeated successes. As a 20-member office, we are small enough to maintain direct involvement of a partner on all of our projects, and large enough to provide our services in an efficient and timely manner with highly qualified personnel. Our proportion of registered professionals is remarkable for an Oregon firm of this size: 9 of our 20 members are licensed landscape architects (covering Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California) and 1 member is a licensed planner (AICP). The firm is a member of the USGBC (United States Green Building Council), 3 members are LEED Accredited Professionals, and 1 is a certified arborist.

We manage our workloads carefully and our project design teams are remarkably stable; 6 of us have been with the firm more than 10 years and we have not experienced a staff reduction in over a decade. The combined experience of the firm’s personnel exceeds 150 years.

Draper Aden Associates

Sports field design is about more than a set of plans; it is about creating the experience of fourth and goal, a penalty kick in overtime, a last second game-winning Hail Mary, a home run in the bottom of the 9th with the bases loaded, or the celebration of a child’s first victory as part of a youth sports team. Draper Aden Athletics exists to create athletic facilities that provide these breathtaking, edge-of-your-seat moments unique to sports. We engineer the experience for fans, players, parents, and coaches at first class sports facilities where memories are created, dreams are born, and athletic programs flourish.

Engineering these experiences, made possible by superior athletic facilities, involves much more than simple field and drainage design. Our personalized approach to planning and development relies heavily on input from owners, coaches, fans, players, and maintenance personnel. Our goal is to create a destination that is right for you, with all of the customized amenities and features to allow those special moments in sports to happen. Before the lights come on, we consider lighting impacts on surrounding neighborhoods, television broadcast requirements, and sport-specific placement. Before the crowd roars, we pay careful attention to parking requirements, access, bleacher placement, and features to enhance the fan experience. Before points are scored, your field must be designed specifically to meet your intended use, for proper drainage and irrigation, and to allow flexibility in layout so that athletes are always playing on a premium surface. Realize your vision and create a premium facility with Draper Aden Athletics. Working together as a team, we can plan, design, build, and enjoy those truly special experiences that occur in sports.
