Since its formation in 1957 the practice has developed a valuable mix of multi-disciplinary expertise which enables us to respond to very complex projects in a creative yet thorough and co-ordinated manner.

Our core skills combine masterplanning, environmental assessment, urban design, landscape, ecology, architecture, arboriculture and green infrastructure. We have implemented many award winning schemes in environmentally sensitive locations.

FPCR believe in working closely with our clients as a team to achieve successful results meeting clients’ aspirations for innovative high quality solutions which are both viable and sustainable. A particularly valuable skill of the practice is our ability to balance commercial realities with expectations of planning authorities and statutory bodies.

Our vision is to create the best environment possible for all.

The practice comprises 8 directors supported by a talented and committed team of over 180 staff, operating from our offices at Lockington Hall (Derby), Dorking, Exeter, Sheffield and York.
