Landscape and Visual (LVIA)

Landscape and Visual (LVIA)

Working with a wide client base from both public and private sectors, our landscape architects and planners bring a fresh and creative approach. Their close involvement in a broad range of landscape assessments from the strategic level to individual sites means you can rely on sound professional advice based on experience and best practice. You can also expect high quality photomontages, created using AutoCAD, Revit, GIS, SketchUp and Photoshop.
 
Our assessments and reviews are carried out in line with the methodology set out in the Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment – produced by the Landscape Institute and The Institute of Environmental Management Assessment, and published by Spon in 2013. Our landscape and visual impact team naturally work closely with our other disciplines such as archaeology, ecology and urban design – regularly contributing to the preparation and review of environmental statements and environmental appraisals.
