Who Are We?
We are a landscape architecture practice that uses a combination of creativity and pragmatism to create memorable spaces for both people and wildlife that feel like a distinct place in their own right. Our specialisms include: site assessment / appraisal, master-planning, landscape and visual impact assessment / appraisal, design for outdoor recreation, parks and open space enhancements, natural play space design, therapeutic landscapes, access improvements, sustainable urban drainage (SUDS), school grounds, edible landscapes, habitat creation and the production of landscape management plans. The practice has access to a large pool of experience and experts in related fields such as: ecology, arboriculture, flood risk assessment, community consultation, 3D visualisations, structural engineering and forestry.
Why did we become MMBEN supporters?
This was a great opportunity to network and raise the profile of our business to a receptive audience. We feel that environmental and social responsibility is central to everything the practice does. The opportunity to support the activities of the partnership was welcomed as a way of us giving something back to Shropshire, the lovely county that we are privileged to work in.
What has your business gained by being an MMBEN supporter?
We have had the opportunity to network at events we have attended. We were invited to deliver our “Habitat Creation on Industrial Sites” presentation at an event earlier in the year, raising awareness of the services we provide and disseminated flyers detailing services offered at all MMBEN events.
We also appreciate the feel good factor associated with ‘practicing what we preach’ and giving back to the community through our MMBEN donation and when we part sponsored one of the activities at Merefest.
What do we hope to gain from being an MMBEN supporter?
- Opportunity to network with other businesses
- Sharing best practice with other businesses
- Delivering Corporate Social Responsibility Agendas
- Delivering environmental improvements for our business
- To show we care about the communities that we operate in
