Gillespies secures its place on The Royal Parks Landscape Architecture Framework

We are pleased to announce that Gillespies has secured a coveted place on The Royal Parks Landscape Architecture Framework.

The practice is one of seven firms selected for this four-year framework, which will run from 2021 to 2025, and provide opportunities to work on a range of landscape projects across London for The Royal Parks (TRP).

The Royal Parks charity looks after eight of London’s largest open spaces, which includes Hyde Park, Richmond Park and Greenwich Park, as well as a number of important open spaces in the capital. The Charity’s vision is to protect, conserve, maintain and care for the parks, as well as improve biodiversity, and promote the use and enjoyment of the Royal Parks for public recreation, health and well-being.

This appointment will provide an opportunity for us to continue to expand our portfolio of high-quality parks, green spaces and planting communities, further building upon our expertise in this sector, which includes the delivery of a new park for the emerging and existing communities in Elephant and Castle and Woolwich, and the restoration and enhancement of the historic Northumberland Park in North Shields.

Gillespies will be supported by a highly experienced team of experts including, but not limited to; quantity surveyors, project managers, stakeholder engagement and landscape management and maintenance.

Armel Mourgue, Partner and TRP Framework Lead at Gillespies, commented on the appointment:

“We are thrilled to have been selected to be part of this hugely important framework and are looking forward to working with TRP to achieve their vision and ambitions. This win will offer our team of experts a prime opportunity to tackle the challenges that parks and green open spaces are facing at the moment, with a view to improve access for all, restore natural ecosystems and create compelling spaces for everyone’s health and well-being.”
