Projects in Place is a volunteer-run, non-proﬁt society formed in Vancouver in 2008. We are a multi-disciplinary group of volunteers whose skills include design, planning, ecology, engineering, construction and more. We bring design and construction professionals together with the general public, using a collaborative model to create and implement innovative projects that beneﬁt the community and demonstrate sustainability.
Any project, any place. We help people not just imagine, but build sustainable neighborhoods and stronger communities through design and build projects. We do this by coordinating volunteer builds which allow us to complete projects for far less than they would otherwise cost through the contribution of volunteer-based or highly reduced professional services, labour and materials.
"Their passion for greening the inner city has helped develop new opportunities for the residents of the DTES and brought the idea of sustainability to the inner city."
