This year, instead of sending out our beloved mouse mats to our clients we have decided to donate money to charity. This year our chosen charity is Forth 1’s Cash for Kids – Mission Christmas.
This is a great charity which collects gifts for children aged 0-18 years in families where Christmas is a luxury they just can’t afford.
We are also collecting gift donations here at our office, if you would like to donate any toys we would be delighted to take them! We will be collecting until Wednesday 12th December.
We are delighted to announce that Lee Houghton has now been promoted to the role of Landscape Design Project Manager. Lee first joined the team in early 2016, and has over 20 years experience in both the public and private sector. As Landscape Design Project Manager, Lee’s responsibilities now include managing the Landscape Design team, overseeing design projects and developing client relationships. If you have any potential landscape design projects that you would like to discuss, Lee would be very happy to hear from you.
Additionally, we are also looking for a talented and enthusiastic Graduate Landscape Architect to join our growing team. We are looking for applicants with a recent MA in Landscape Architecture or similar, excellent design & graphics skills, good written skills and proficient in AutoCAD and Photoshop. Potential applicants should submit a CV and concise portfolio for the attention of Laura Moore, either by post or email to email@example.com
Ross is now back in the office after a fortnight in America exploring new business opportunities and potential exciting new projects. As well as meeting a range of potential new clients, some time was spent working on a design charrette for a new settlement / leisure destination in Arkansas. We are all looking forward to working on some interesting new projects!
We are looking forward to working on the next stage of this project now that formal consent has been granted. We provided LVIA, Landscape Design & ecology services for the EIA last year. The visualisations team really enjoyed producing the LVIA graphics for this one, particularly as night-time visualisations were required in addition to detailed daytime photomontages.
More information on the services we have provided for Kingsford Stadium so far can be found here.
A few of us had a fantastic time out in the sunshine yesterday with Micah from Creative Sides Photography, testing the capabilities of drone photography and video. It certainly seems like it could be an invaluable tool for a wide range of projects, and some of the shots we got were stunning. The next step is to try our hand at turning the images into aerial photomontages of the proposed site.
We are pleased to hear that the planning committee have approved the application for a new housing development in West Wemyss, Fife. Our visualisations team provided photomontages to illustrate how the proposals could look, whilst our design team also supplied landscape design for the proposed scheme.
