SLR works at all scales, from major urban extensions and strategic developments, to small infill sites in towns and cities, on both brownfield and greenfield land. Our services often include landscape architectural input in creating landscape-led design solutions in sensitive environments, alongside conceptual layout work.
SLR coordinates inputs into the design process and provides a full suite of design-related documents for promotion purposes. With effective stakeholder engagement, a comprehensive vision for the site or area is developed.
