Confluence Selects Dolores Silkworth To Lead New Nebraska Office

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

We are excited and proud to announce the hiring of industry veteran Dolores Silkworth PLA, ASLA to lead Confluence’s new Nebraska office – located in the creative confines of Omaha’s Mastercraft co-working building.

Confluence has been working in Nebraska for 15 years, and as demand steadily grew for our design and planning services it became clear that a permanent presence was needed. Silkworth is the ideal fit and brings 30 years of experience providing landscape architecture, urban design and master planning services to clients throughout the Midwest. “I am thrilled to join such a talented and creative team, and to firmly establish Confluence’s presence in Nebraska,” said Dolores.

“Dolores has a proven track record of successful design collaboration and implementation. We are excited about the opportunity to work with her,” explains Chris Della Vedova, Confluence President & CEO in Des Moines.

“She is a leader in our field, and her project experience has improved the quality of life in Omaha and throughout the Midwest. Dolores provides us with the ability to be even more responsive to our existing clients in Nebraska and beyond,” says Chris Cline, Confluence Senior Vice President in Kansas City.

Recent Confluence projects in the Cornhusker state include the Lincoln Children’s Zoo expansion, the University of Nebraska – Lincoln’s East Campus Residence Hall and the school’s 17th Street Dining Center. With a full-time leader in the market, Confluence has plans to hire six to eight additional professional design and planning team members over the next five years.

Confluence has grown to become one of the largest landscape architecture and planning firms in the country. Nebraska is now the fifth state where the firm has an office presence. Other offices can be found in Des Moines, IA; Kansas City, MO; Sioux Falls, SD; Cedar Rapids, IA; and Minneapolis, MN.
