Nicholas de Jong Associates has been established since 1984 in the UK and 2001 in Ireland, providing Land Planning, Urban Design and Landscape Architectural services for public and private sector clients throughout the UK, Ireland and many countries overseas.
We are committed to the environment we live in and aspire to influence how change can be positively managed for the benefit of creating memorable and sustainable places for people. We work at many different levels, from the macro scale of the urban structure (planning, zoning, transport and infrastructure networks) to the micro scale of street furniture and lighting. Our involvement covers all aspects of urban design projects from inception, local authority and public consultations, the preparation of planning and design strategies, to detailed design and delivery of projects through construction administration.
Our approach to every project is underpinned by:
Achieving innovative planning and design solutions that build upon a ‘sense of place’;
Ensuring an efficient, reliable and cost effective service that exceeds the expectations of the Client in terms of design and performance;
Developing and maintaining strong, personal Client relationships;
Meeting and exceeding the technical requirements of the brief; and
Achieving the project aims in a timely, consistent and professional manner.
Our services include town centre regeneration and improvement studies; development frameworks; public realm design; urban place making and legibility initiatives; design guidelines; pedestrian priority and traffic calming initiatives; townscape heritage and historic landscape appraisals; landscape and visual impact analysis; development master planning; external design, contract documentation and site supervision of schemes for town centre, residential, industrial, commercial, recreation and leisure developments.
The practice is particularly experienced at managing and working as part of a multi-disciplinary team – understanding and respecting the relevant roles of other professionals and ensuring that appropriate skills and resources are available for each project. We also maintain a network of related disciplines (including ecology, arboriculture and archaeology) to ensure appropriate skills and resources are available for each project.
Nicholas de Jong Associates is a Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute. We maintain a quality system designed to meet the requirements of EN ISO 9001:2008.
