As landscape architects, to realise an overall vision, we are involved in community consultation and participation.
Our role concerns the integrity of the environment, balancing competing for land use while protecting natural processes, as well as important cultural and natural resources.
It is vital to cooperate with other consultants such as traffic, ecology, engineering, geomorphology, recreation, archaeology, planning and architecture. This allows the creation of culturally rich, environmentally responsible, socially diverse, and economically sound communities.
r+m is a signatory to the New Zealand Urban Design Protocol.
We have the greatest chance to add value to a project by having an early involvement in the development process and site planning.
