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.
Joanne has recently been working with Stewart Milne Homes in Aberdeen giving presentations and running workshops to assist them with Delivering Successful Landscapes in line with their Design Excellence Quality Manual. The seminars & workshops have raised awareness of typical landscape implementation problems that can be resolved on site.
