Design & Construct Landscape Projects

LCS Landscapes has had a Design and Construct team for over fifteen years. This team has specialised in project work that focusses around quality design and construction outcomes. The Design and Construct team have the skills and expertise to work with clients to develop holistic design solutions and deliver it on ground from start to finish in a timely efficient process.

Some projects can benefit greatly from a design and construct approach. Some of these benefits are;

  • Our vast construction knowledge pairs with good design and sound construction.
  • Clients have direct contact with the Design and Construct team throughout the design phase, into construction and handover.
  • Our design ethos is around functionality and pragmatic design solutions. Constructability and quality finish are backed by our construction management and operations team to run these projects to agreed programme.
  • The Design and Construct team over many years have developed close working relationships with our internal construction teams, this translates to quality driven outcomes. Improved communication of design intent and quick decision making on site makes the Design and Construct model efficient in administering and superintending projects.

Our design and construct projects deliver on the high expectations set by our clients. Our ability to work closely with all stakeholders from initial site analysis and concept work through to design development, documentation, construction gives the Design and construct model of procurement a real advantage.

The LCS Landscapes D&C Approach

Step 1 – Initial Contact

Good communication is an important factor in achieving the best design that matches your construction budget and vision.

We will ask the following questions asked to help establish a project design brief and establish a design fee:

• What are the main ambitions?
• Is there a time frame for the project?
• Are there any specific requests?
• How big is the area?
• What is the budget?

Step 2 – Consultation

Our team will meet with you on-site to discuss ideas and gather all the necessary information to prepare your concept design.

A site measure is essential as part of the consultation process, with key site features and services noted as these items can impact the final design.

We explore the practical and aesthetical needs for your space during the on-site consultation, including function and budget.

Step 3 – Design

Brainstorming is the first step in developing a concept for the area. In this part of the process, it is essential to see possibilities instead of obstacles to ensure the best and most creative vision.

Our team will convert the ideas acquired during the consultation, combined with our experience and creative insight, to sketches before one concept moves forward for further development.

Step 4 – Final Design & Construction Quotation

Our team will submit this final concept design for review and approval with a construction quotation.

Upon agreeing to the quotation, a construction program will be submitted, which outlines the activities and durations and how it works with your project site requirements.

This unique approach to the delivery of quality landscapes has seen us work with Local Government, Schools both public and private, regional clients, civil contractors, Architects and Builders to deliver exceptional projects with true value for money.
