Landscape architecture practice now green

Outerspace aim to create stunning and meaningful landscape architecture and have had a long-standing focus on sustainability, both within their own practice and in the design of schemes for clients. In all of their schemes they seek to balance the needs of people and biodiversity.

Through preparing a Green Small Business environmental management system, the firm have been able to refine their approach to managing their environmental impacts. Their newly certified Green Small Business policy and action plan identify incremental improvements in key areas such as energy use, company administration and the specification of materials for clients.

Practice Manager Melanie Winter was excited by the benefits: “Thank you so much for the policy and environmental action plan. They are great and show an understanding of our business and the realities of running a small business. The process was very good. In the space of a 40 minute phone call we went through all key aspects of the business. It will work as a great way of keeping us in check with our own environmental plans and a way of letting clients know about our plans and aims.”
