Grounds staff is proud to have been honoured with the 2006 President’s Award of Excellence for outstanding service to the University. Full-time staff, augmented by student gardeners and contracted services, perform both ongoing landscape maintenance activities and landscape construction projects.
Sustainability practices are used to maintain a haven of diverse ecosystems and wildlife. McMaster’s abundant natural lands provide a unique university setting and opportunity for study.
Public safety is also a primary concern, with attention paid to creating year-round safe and accessible roadways, paths and open spaces for the campus community.
The Campus Master Plan emphasizes the creation of compelling spaces, areas where people work, play, study and relax.
