Catherine is gaining experience in a wide variety of landscape sectors, from public realm and higher education to the historic environment and residential green infrastructure.
She has worked on several projects for the University of Bristol, including concept stages for both the proposed city centre Enterprise Campus and the new landmark library building in Clifton, as well as detailed design stages for the Tyndall Avenue Public Realm scheme. Her work has included the preparation of baseline survey and concept design reports, stakeholder engagement at public events and innovative softworks design with a focus on contemporary planting practice.
Catherine’s interest in the historic environment has been fed by her work on the Tintagel Castle Footbridge and Footpath Improvements scheme for English Heritage: a popular tourist destination as well as being located with an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Heritage Coast, Scheduled Monument, Special Area of Conservation and Site of Special Scientific Interest. Her experience includes the preparation of construction drawing packages for multiple construction phases, as well as practical onsite work setting out new footpath alignments.
She also has experience of working with clients on small scale design projects, from care home car park and garden designs for Fairlie Healthcare, to private garden schemes for clients in Wiltshire and the West Midlands. She has also prepared the planning application drawings for a new community garden at Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol.
Catherine is able to bring her keen interests in landscape urbanism and ecology to much of her project work, a passion which developed through her MA research into rewilding for an urban environment.
