Newly Qualified CMLI

A huge congratulations to Kelly who has successfully passed her P2C exam to become a Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute! Kelly has studied extremely hard over the past 2 years so it is very much deserved and we are hugely proud of her.

We keenly support our colleagues through their professional development by mentoring and hosting regular CPD sessions, workshops and discussion groups, ensuring candidates are fully prepared ahead not just ahead of their exams, but throughout their journey as professionals. Well done again to Kelly!

Landscape Institute Award Winners!

We are extremely proud to have won the ‘Best Small Scale Development’ award for Marlborough Primary School at the 90th LI Awards ceremony - attended by none other than the legend that is Sir David Attenborough!

With the current challenges facing our natural world and our society, creating inspiring outdoor spaces for our youngest generations is absolutely key to getting us all engaged, getting children interested in the outdoors and ultimately fostering a real passion for the future of our environment and public spaces.

A huge well done to everyone involved in the project!

Landscape Institute Award Finalists!

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Marlborough Primary School has been shortlisted as a finalist at the Landscape Institute Awards! The awards ceremony takes place at the end of November so we are keeping our fingers crossed for another Marlborough win!

Promotions!

We are thrilled to announce a trio of promotions in the studio. Claire has been promoted to Senior Landscape Architect, Robin to Associate and Jamie to Senior Associate! All extremely well deserved, in recognition of their hard work and the vital roles they all play within the Macgregor Smith team.

2019 Macgregor Smith prize for Landscape and Public Realm Design

As part of our continued partnership with the University of Bath’s Department of Architecture, we are delighted to have chosen the winner for our Landscape and Public Realm Award 2019.

This year’s award goes to Masters student Lilian Lam for her project ‘Mercato Grenada Gastronomic Centre’.

Lilian's project focuses on sustainable food production, educating buyers about food miles, origins, seasonality and producers, a place to showcase and celebrate local cuisine in the community and a focus on testing sustainable food waste disposal methodologies.

RHS Tatton Park – Young Designer Award

It's a double celebration for Macgregor Smith at this year's RHS Tatton Park Flower Show as we are equally proud and delighted to announce that Kristian Reay has been awarded both a Gold Award and Best Young Designer!
The Phytosanctuary Garden is a beautiful space awash with ornamental grasses and fragrant perennials but also explores a darker message - the growing threat of the deadly plant disease Xylella.
The role of gardeners and landscape architects in responding to the threat posed by Xylella is extremely pertinent to the current climate and reminds us all of the importance of keeping our plant health knowledge up to date and liaising closely with reputable nurseries.
