Site Investigation, mapping, factual reporting

Better data & knowledge of the land, allows informed decision making for realistic project planning, responsive design and reduced risk during construction.

At Landform Projects Ltd, we have a passion for what is under the ground

as much as what surrounds it and forms on top. 

Below is a selection of 'Site Investigation' areas where we may be able to help; but it is not exhaustive. Please call for a friendly chat about any project. Hopefully we can help directly, but if not, we are happy to offer any insight we can to help keep the project moving in the right direction:

Through sound understanding of all the complexities of the land, site, landscape, environment, ecology, engineering and stakeholders, we are able to provide informed and robust design for any land development project.

At Landform Projects Ltd, we understand that communication is fundamental to good design (and project management). Effective 2-way communication of concepts,  ideas and solutions is vital not just with our clients, but also with contractors, other consultants and all other stakeholders.


We pride ourselves on our communication skills, both in conveying complex ideas and concepts (visually and otherwise), and in listening to what our clients  actually want to achieve with their land development project. 

Below is a selection of 'Site Design' areas where we may be able to help; but it is not exhaustive. Please call for a friendly chat about any project. 

-  Domestic:

   Landscape Design:

   landscape plans, caveat and

   consent compliance designs,

   access, retaining and hard

   design and layout, master  plans, 

   preliminary and detailed design,

"Project Management" begins the minute the idea for a site is formed by the client. We would argue the next call should be to us, of course.

We pride ourselves on our unique approach to broader "Landscape Architecture". With a strong basis in site investigation, landscape engineering, construction project management, and landscape design; we can communicate effectively in, and project manage, all "land" related aspects and disciplines in the life-cycle of the project.

With our knowledge of the complexities of Land Development, from the initial site scoping through to Practical Completion, we are able to add value through comprehensive project management consulting from start to finish.

land development projects investigated, designed and project managed from the ground up

Landform Projects Ltd was formed late 2018 to realise our vision for a Landscape Architecture & Design Consultancy that offered all clients a truly multi-disciplinary,  multi-communicative, & facilitative approach to land investigation, land engineering, landscape architecture & site design.


Landform Projects Ltd can deliver added value at many phases in the project; however, the earlier our involvement the better. The design  becomes 'informed', and construction risks generally reduce, through early assessment of the site and its characteristics.

With a unique understanding of the complexities and opportunities specific to the land, and a passion for landscape design, we can provide a fresh range of design and technical land development consulting services on any project. 

Please give Richard Wise a call on 027 2212987, or email, or fill out the query submission form below for a friendly no-obligation chat about your development project. With our extensive network of consultants, contractors & suppliers it is always likely we can assist with a bit of advice to help keep the project moving forward. We look forward to hearing from you.



Despite having only formed in late 2018, Landform Projects has completed two school Site Design and Management Projects, as well as numerous smaller projects ranging from Domestic Landscape Design to Pre-Purchase and other investigations & factual reports. The projects below are a brief snapshot of some of the work completed up to end of 2019.
