Jim Diggle is a Partner at Gillespies with over 30 years’ experience in masterplanning and landscape architecture. His work is delivered in both the United Kingdom and international markets and extends across all major recognised sectors including retail, residential, leisure and sport, offices, research, education, health and mixed/multi-use developments.
An appetite for international working led Jim to South East Asia in the nineties where he set up Gillespies’ office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He subsequently managed this for 10 years building the firm’s reputation in Asia and the Pacific Rim. Since returning to a UK base, his experience has expanded to cover not only western European countries but further east including Russia, the Middle East, North and West Africa and Canada.
Jim’s approach to design and masterplanning places paramount consideration on end-user experience, and securing multi-layered qualities that enrich lives, creating places and destinations that are delightful and memorable, as well as rational and legible.
Jim is the regional partner for the southern offices of Gillespies and bears overall responsibility for the management of the region.
