HIs work includes competition winning schemes, expert witness services, historical restoration, woodland and forest management studies, site art, campus design, public parks, city squares and streetscapes, business parks, housing layouts, company headquarters, seafront and resort schemes, strategic landscape planning and masterplanning. The completed work has attracted wide publicity and awards. He has particular expertise in sustainable design technology, roof gardens and water features.
