Trinity Western University Memorial Garden: Feature Project

Solus Hemi firepit lit at memorial garden university of trinity western langley BC

A scholarship and courtyard renovation honor the life of Jordan Thiessen.

A very special fire pit was installed at the Trinity Western University in British Columbia. It is in memory of the life of Jordan Thiessen who was a student at the university. During his time at the university Jordan felt that the unloved and uncared for Douglas Courtyard could be a beautiful space. With some planting and a fire pit it would offer a place for students to relax and enjoy on campus.  Something he shared with his parents during a campus visit.

When Jordan sadly lost his life on October 18 2012, just 12 days after he married his university sweetheart, the family wanted to do something in his memory. His parents, Shirley and Carey set up the Jordan Thiessen Memorial Scholarship endowment but they wanted to do more. They recognized the deep impact that the University had on Jordan’s short life. They felt that making over the Douglas courtyard would not only honor Jordan, but it would also benefit all future students. Shirley threw herself into raising funds for both the scholarship and the courtyard project. The Jordan Thiessen Memorial Courtyard was dedicated September 14, 2013. On what would have been Jordan’s 24th birthday.

The memorial garden is now a wonderful place for students to enjoy, which gives great pleasure to Jordan’s parents.  If you would like to give to the courtyard project, or to the Jordan Thiessen Memorial Scholarship, please email Shirley Thiessen at shirley.thiessen@twu.ca.

Making the most of a roof terrace

If you have a roof terrace or balcony, how can you make the most of it? There are some inspirational ideas out there to add value to your outside space:

Create warmth and use your outside space all year with a fire pit. In a small space, it is still possible to add a functional but stylish fire pit that is safe to use. The Firecube is ideal and with different fuel options, it can conform to safety requirements. An optional table top also means it is multi-use.

Solus Firecube

For larger terraces or balconies, fire pits and tables will create a social area with seating positioned around. The Elevated Halo is a great example and used in residential and commercial spaces.

Solus Dome water feature

Water features are also an option on a terrace and can create a calm and tranquil environment. They can be an oasis in the city and integral as part of the mindful living trend for 2018*. Look out for self-circulating and “plug and play” products. This means there is no plumbing and water is not being wasted. The Dome is a great example.

There are many designers who are experienced in designing roof top and terrace gardens which do tend to be in cities where outside space is at a premium.

 

 

Amber Freda Landscape Design have created some amazing spaces in NYC and their website has a portfolio of these as well as offering informative blogs such as flowers for a city roof top garden.

The Garden Builders in the UK have also worked on transforming roof spaces in London and their blog 7 roof terrace ideas showcases some of them and offers expert advice.

Top things to consider when designing for a firepit

There are many things to consider when designing the space and making a firepit a main feature.

 

Hemi Firebowl with Ring

DESIGN

This may seem obvious, but you really don’t want to be moving the firepit around the area – it is much easier to move the furniture than the firepit.

FUEL SOURCE

One consideration is the fuel source that will be used. Will it be natural gas, liquid propane, bio-fuel, wood burning? There are pros and cons to all of them. Operating costs, fuel refilling, clean up (or none) and maintenance are all things to think about.

If you are designing the space from scratch and have the ability to run a gas pipe, do so even if you haven’t selected the fire pit yet. Even if you opt for a bio fuel or wood burner, it will allow for future placement of a gas unit before you place your pavers, decking or tile.

SAFETY

Consider children.  How does the firepit operate?  What safety concerns are there?  How is it kept unlit when adults are not about?

Hemi outdoor gas fire pit Solus

MULT-FUNCTIONALITY

A good thing to consider is multi-functionality. Could the firepit be used as a table when not in use as a fire pit? This could possibly replace the need for a coffee table in your design.

Solus firebox gas fire pit with wood table top

LOCAL FIRE CODE

Consider the local fire code. Not all fire pits are created equally. Many states, provinces and counties require the entire fire pit to be certified as an appliance, not just having a certified burner. Most burners these days are certified, but once installed into a custom built brick pit they become uncertified.  If longevity is important – consider the warranty.

IGNITION SYSTEMS

There are a number of ignition systems to consider which include:  Manual lit ignition, Manual lit with flame supervision, Electronic ignition and electronic ignition with adjustable flame. There is also the high-tech option of the smart home kit. Our sales team would be happy to explain these different options in further detail along with how they can best suit your design.

RESALE VALUE

Consider the resale value – even if you are not planning to move or sell, fire pits have been (and continue to remain) one of the top three desired features of all outdoor landscape projects alongside lighting and dining.

Contact us for more information on our products and what to consider.
