The Landmark Story
A quick company history
Nick first created the company to undertake landscape design based on sound ecological principles, initially as a commercial trading arm of Avon Wildlife Trust.
The concept was ahead of its time, when words like ‘environment’, ‘sustainability’ and ‘impact assessment’ were virtually unheard of in the business world. Nevertheless, Landmark quickly flourished and has remained at the forefront of its field for over 20 years.
Today, Landmark is a respected multi-disciplinary consultancy, working on a large array of development projects for clients throughout the UK and abroad.
“A good sized, coordinated practice. There is great benefits to the client and design team in using their multi-disciplinary approach.”
Andrew Iles, Willmore Iles Architects
The Landmark team consists of highly motivated landscape architects, environmental planners, ecologists and graphic designers working collaboratively to deliver client aspirations.
What we do
We apply these skills to all aspects of planning, environmental planning, design and management, from baseline ecological and landscape survey and evaluation, through management of environmental impact assessment and negotiation with receiving authorities, to project design, contract supervision and long-term monitoring of developed sites.
How we work
All our services are underpinned by rigorous scientific evaluation, sustainable principles and high quality design. The drawings, reports, illustrated studies and presentations that we produce for our clients are complemented by visualisation and photo-montage techniques from our talented in-house designers.
We thrive on devising realistic, cost-effective and innovative measures, underpinned by sustainable principles and high quality design, to mitigate adverse impacts of development. We guarantee quality by ensuring that all projects are managed by an expert Principal Consultant, supported by a highly qualified team.
“The Landmark Practice is the retained environmental consultancy for The Bristol Port Company. We benefit from their exemplary service and lead on environmental issues. For me, what sets them apart is their recognition of our commercial needs as well as our environmental concerns.”
John Chaplin, Director of Engineering, The Bristol Port Company
Our commitment to sustainability
Although no longer directly linked to the Wildlife Trust, Landmark retains its roots firmly in biodiversity conservation. We actively support charities and enterprise in the environmental sector and promote education by working with universities and CPD trainers to provide specialist skills in environmental planning and ecology.
