ANALYSIS AND FEASIBILITY
EA can assist clients in formation of landscape brief and assessment of site development capacity through landscape appraisals, visual impact studies (LVIA), townscape character analysis and landscape master planning. We promote the early involvement of landscape in the design process to ensure the integration and coordination of key landscape elements with architectural and engineering strategies.
Proposing early concepts or strategic approaches to often complex urban or commercial projects, EA are skilled at quickly capturing our clients' visions and relaying these with supporting graphic and written information. We also provide landscape planning advice for clients to ensure that concepts are in line with the requirements of local and national planning policies which can form the basis of an outline planning submission.
EA can quickly and succinctly prepare landscape information to a level to support a full planning application at a level that meets the LPA requirements while maintaining the flexibility often required by our clients. EA understand the need for full team integration and maintaining a focus on achieve-ability and build-ability at this stage.
EA provide detailed design and post planning services such as detailed scheme designs, planting strategies and design, levels and grading, detailed assembly designs through to full documentation (plans sections, details and NBS specifications) that can be issued to contractors for pricing and tendering, both alone, and as part of a design team.
TENDERING AND IMPLEMENTATION
EA provide tendering, tender review, contract administration and technical landscape services for implementation of landscape works. EA commitment to achieving high quality results had often involved a strong site presence during implementation and assistance in sourcing plant material, checking mock-ups or off site fabrication and approving shop drawings.
A key part of designing landscapes is understanding how they evolve and improve overtime. EA is committed to revisiting its projects to measure their success and advise clients on ongoing maintenance and operational issues.
