A landscape scheme for a new HQ, training facility and distribution centre for Aico Ltd in Oswestry. The landscape was designed to reflect the company's values including the wellbeing of its staff. The design incorporates sustainable drainage (SuDS), wildlife pond, native tree planting, trim trail, community orchard, communal areas and woodland walk. As well as developing the landscape design we produced drawings and specifications for the tendering of the construction contract.
Lingard Farrow Styles have produced a number Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIAs) and created a series of photomontages of poultry units as part of a planning applications including Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). For each photomontage a detailed 3D model of the proposed buildings and landform was constructed, rendered and placed accurately using GPS within high quality photography, also provided by Lingard Farrow Styles. Our landscape mitigation plans have been developed as part of the LVIA process to reduce potential landscape and visual effects.
Continuing a long-term association with the site and Welsh Government, Lingard Farrow Styles have recently provided assistance with a planning application and tender documentation for a proposed manufacturing facility on Offa's Dyke Business Park. The facility is an extension for Invertek Drives Ltd, a local success story, for whom we previously provided a landscape scheme that it is now flourishing. For this new project we coordinated with architects and engineers to provide a site-wide planting plan, ecology survey, landscape and habitat management plan and input towards BREEAM credits. The landscape design includes a planting palette designed to reflect Invertek's corporate colours while providing valuable habitat.
A Welsh Assembly Government Project. This multi-million pound landscape refurbishment to a 76 hectare pre-war industrial estate, incorporated new public footpaths, cycleways, amenity areas, and extensive new planting infrastructure. Individual landscape schemes to new and existing production units were included in the design and management scheme.
The project for the enterprise park was part-funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and the site features a factory for CastAlum, a large manufacturer of aluminium vehicle components shipped around the world.
Lingard Farrow Styles provided an assessment of the existing landscape which features veteran oak trees, and developed a landscape strategy which included a substantial attenuation lake and extensive structure planting.
The lake was designed as a backdrop to the site's buildings and this, along with the landscape scheme is now flourishing as a haven for both aquatic and terrestrial wildlife.
