Based in our Dorking office, Leo has over 13 years of experience in the landscape industry and has been involved in a wide range of landscape and environmental projects from strategic level site assessment through to detailed design and implementation.
Since joining FPCR in 2011, Leo has specialised in masterplanning and landscape and visual assessment for large scale residential, employment and mixed-use developments producing full suites of promotional and application material including vision and design documents. As lead masterplannner Leo played an instrumental role in creating proposals for a mixed-use development of 3000 new homes, 20 hectares of employment development and new community parks in Nottinghamshire. He is keen to see this scheme being built over the coming years as part of a sustainable urban extension for Nottingham at Fairham Pastures, Clifton.
Leo also has considerable experience in urban realm strategies, tendering, contract administration and implementation works. He has been involved with a variety of proposals over a range of sectors including design work on schools projects across London and the Midlands, and the design and implementation of country park developments, such as the Woodland Trust’s flagship site in Coalville – Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Wood, a former opencast mining site.
Leo has a particular interest in the design of challenging public spaces where he is able to combine his background in fine art with his former experience as a landscape contractor to produce creative and practical design solutions. Leo recently enjoyed working alongside the company’s team of Play specialists to produce the concept design of an art-focused play area for the prestigious art gallery Hepworth Wakefield.
