Commercial Development

Brindley’s team provides a comprehensive strategic promotion, ecological consultancy, landscape masterplanning and landscape design service to a wide range of commercial property developers, investors, project managers and planning consultants.

Our team of Landscape Architects, supported by in-house landscape technicians and ecologists, can deliver robust and practical hard and soft landscape design advice relevant for a wide selection of commercial developments, including city centre office developments, retail parks, industrial developments, hotels, and multi-use developments.  Each of our projects is informed by the physical and commercial constraints and opportunities of each site. 

We provide solutions relevant to both the pre- and post-planning application stages of a project, including initial scoping work and mitigation allowing the discharge of planning conditions. Post planning, we deliver detailed design information, contract administration and Clerk of works / ECoW services.
