Two of the environmental, landscape, forestry and planning industry’s most experienced service providers are celebrating the launch of Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt, which will offer a unified range of environmental, landscape, planning and forestry services – all under one roof.
With a combined 65 years of experience in the sector, Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt is the result of a union between Nicholsons who provide high quality landscaping, forestry and arboriculture services and Lockhart Garratt who are industry leaders in environmental planning, forestry, ecology, arboriculture, soils and landscape architecture consultancy.
Uniting two successful businesses will create a unique provision within the industry, offering end-to-end services and expertise of the highest quality within one cohesive team, from planning support through to landscape delivery. All existing client and service relationships will be strengthened through enhanced resources, innovative thinking and a wider service offer.
The expansion comes after the businesses worked together to develop the not-for-profit Forest Canopy Foundation (FCF), a partnership of professionals from the forestry industry leading the way to help address climate change by focusing on woodland creation and management across England.
John Lockhart of Lockhart Garratt, said: “Having collaborated so successfully on the FCF project, it became evident that our two companies had a great deal of cultural synergy and complementary expertise. The combined business will deliver an invaluable suite of joined up services, supporting clients from project inception through to the final sign off and long-term management.”
Maximising the opportunities and meeting the challenges posed by sustainable environmental management is at the core of Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt’s shared values and vision.
Managing director of Nicholsons, Liz Nicholson, said: “Nicholsons’ 40 years of expert contracting experience perfectly complements Lockhart Garratt’s impressive track record in industry leadership, influence and professional stakeholder relationships. We are stronger together – which undoubtedly benefits our clients and the industry itself.”
With over six decades of experience between them, both companies work to solve landowners’ and developers’ problems, ensuring the best outcomes of any project. With their shared positive culture and extensive range of experience across the sector, Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt aims to be a significant force for change, influence and support in the environmental planning and forestry industries.
The launch of NICHOLSONS LOCKHART GARRATT took place on 21 January 2022.
