Land Use Consultants pursues environmental hallmark

Land Use Consultants (LUC) is in the process of implementing standards based on quality management system ISO 9001: 2008 and environmental management system ISO 14001: 2004.

The firm has appointed Stephen Lowe as a dedicated quality and environmental assurance manager to help meet its aim.

LUC is working towards UKAS Accredited ISO 9001 and 14001 registration and certification by December 2010.

It was recently picked out in a Daily Telegraph feature on the best garden design projects of the decade.

The Eden Project was named the garden of 2001.

Alnwick Castle in Northumberland was the garden of 2002. LUC prepared a conservation plan for the Capability Brown Park and early ideas for the Walled Garden, which was recognised in the article as an "extraordinary revamp".

Trentham Gardens in Stoke-on-Trent was given as the highlight of 2008. LUC worked with a number of experts, including international garden designers Piet Oudolf and Tom Stewart Smith, to prepare the refurbishment plans for the gardens and park.
