FPCR opens new office near York

We are pleased to announce that our leading environmental & integrated design company opened its doors on Wednesday 4 January to a fourth office at the National Agri-Food Innovation Campus, near York. The expansion into the north of the country reflects FPCR’s growing client base.

It is an exciting time for us and our clients as we further expand our regional presence with the potential for offering an even better value service by more local teams.

Comprising of 8 directors supported by a talented and committed team of over 120 staff, FPCR’s core skills combine masterplanning, environmental assessment, urban design, landscape, ecology, architecture, arboriculture and green infrastructure.

The York office currently has three permanent members of staff: James Eales – Associate Ecologist, Andy Brennan – Senior Ecologist and Ian Hunter – Ecologist. They represent a wide range of expertise and collectively over 30 years of postgraduate experience and, through which, we can offer a complete package from our existing master planning, landscape, architecture and arboricultural teams. We aim to appoint additional staff as we grow, to satisfy our clients needs.

FPCR’s particular strength lies in over 30 years’ experience of multi-disciplinary master planning, securing planning permissions for development and then seeing schemes through to final completion. Our “ground up” approach where projects evolve from a thorough understanding of sites constraints and opportunities pays dividends by creating sustainable new environments. The practice is involved in three of the recently announced garden villages and towns and has also implemented many award winning schemes in environmentally sensitive locations.

We take pride in our ability to balance commercial realities with expectations of planning authorities and statutory bodies. Take a look at some of the exciting projects we’ve worked on and see who we work with.
