Parkwood Consultancy Services creates one-stop landscape shop with takeover of landscape architecture firm

Landscape and project management practice Parkwood Consultancy Services (PCS) has taken over landscape architecture firm Roger Griffiths Associates (RGA).

PCS, with 20 staff and based in Stratford, said it wanted to take over seven-strong RGS in Rugby to offer a one-stop service for clients across several sectors including education, leisure and historic landscapes.

"We were looking for a good fit with our specialisms," said PCS business development manager Simon Hewitt. "Roger was looking to retire and we’ve worked with the firm before. They have a number of very loyal clients."

He said it was too early to say if there would be a name change or merger of premises. PCS is looking to take on two landscape architects and a planning consultant.

Managing director Jackie Evans said: "RGA will perfectly complement the landscaping team here at PCS and will result in us being able to offer a better service to our clients.

"The addition of the experienced landscape architects and urban-design team in conjunction with PCS’s landscape management and environmental team offers all our customers a true one-stop solution."

PCS landscape architects and project managers won a West Midlands award from the Royal Institute of British Architects earlier this year for work to Wyre Forest Crematorium, a 9ha site, praised for its aesthetically pleasing, functional and sustainable landscape by lead landscape architect Kevin Salmon and project manager Pauline Roper.
