Our landscape design service is rooted in our team’s broad experience and practical knowledge. From early stage concept development through planning submission and discharge of conditions we work with project and client teams in an integrated manner to deliver exciting landscapes. Through detailed design our expertise in both planting and hard landscape ensures concepts and principles are realised, whilst working within scheme budgets and programme.
A major part of our green project experience has been the development of cycle strategies where strategic thinking is often required. Working as part of multi disciplinary teams we can provide valuable experience having worked on major long term projects, where we have provided assessments and design input.
For the States of Jersey we carried out assessments and provided design guidance on a range of cycle strategies to create the Eastern Cycle Network. This included detailed Strava data to determine suppressed demand, potential barriers and to identify opportunities for effective intervention.
We have also undertaken studies for long distance cycle ways and active travel provision in Conwy associated with the A55, a scheme providing rural links around the Trawsfynydd Lake area; in North Somerset as part of infrastructure and housing development and in Kent for a cycle way associated with the Royal Military Canal.
These projects maybe large scale but they require the ability to drill down into the detail and this often means we work hand in hand with our team of ecologists ensuring we are planning not just to provide green transport routes but ones where we are embracing the local landscape and ecology and protecting and enhancing it. Our landscape architects often assist our ecologists on the ground in their recording studies to help their understanding of the inherent value of the landscapes we are designing in, seeing their fragilities but also the opportunities for enhancement and sustainability. It’s a team approach all round, bringing many decades of experience to bare.
