Planit-IE Promotions

The Partnership is delighted to confirm staff promotions across our London and Manchester studios.

Gillian Webb’s promotion to Project Landscape Architect reflects her major role in developing the Landscape Assessment and Masterplanning work within the practice. Her sensitive and considered landscape-led approach has been particularly successful within challenging projects such as the regeneration of the historic estates of Booths Hall and Alderley Park Campus in Cheshire.

Having delivered some of the Manchester’s studio’s key projects, Matt Stirton has been made a Project Landscape Architect. His sterling work on Altrincham’s public realm is transforming our home town, and he has created beautiful settings for Stephen Broadbent’s sculptures within the new linear park and square at Daresbury Sci-Tech.

Working his way from Graduate to Project Landscape Architect during his 4 years with the practice, Pete Robinson has been instrumental to sustaining the growth of our London studio. A number of his projects have been constructed over the last year, including two Ealing schools, a private estate in Oxfordshire and new commercial development at Farnborough Business Park.

Sarah Fox’s promotion to Project Landscape Architect recognises her emerging managerial and project leadership qualities. Her recent projects include the integration of a private hospital within a mature landscape setting, utlising nature’s healing properties to promote recovery and wellbeing. She also developed proposals for the £700m transformation of Salford’s Middlewood Locks.

Luke Whitaker has played a key role in developing the quality of graphic representation of project proposals across both studios. He is promoted to Landscape Architect following his heavy involvement in high profile schemes that include: Strand East, adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park; Battersea Exchange; and Birmingham Conservatoire.

Abi Allen was appointed as a Graphic Design Assistant but has been working at a level significantly exceeding this. Her promotion to Graphic Designer reflects her creativity and dedicated work ethic that is resulting in the continual advancement of practice documents, reports and presentations and graphic capabilities.

Congratulations to each of you. Your promotions are well-deserved and we’d like to thank you for your continued work and commitment to the practice.
