ASH were commissioned to develop a landscape strategy design and implementation at Edinburgh Airport

As part of BAA’s commitment to creating a  high  quality  environment  at  Airports, ASH has been involved with the landscape strategy design and implementation at Edinburgh and Glasgow Airports over a number of years.

Key Tasks

Landscape and visual impact assessment

Landscape design



What we did 

The aims and objectives of the landscape strategy were to support planning submissions and guide landscape implementation at the airport. The landscape strategy involved:

  • Consultations
  • Site survey, analysis and research of both the existing environmental constraints and landscape issues
  • Visual assessment of the wider area including the existing views of the Airports and the potential visual impacts  of  future  development  out with the existing Airport boundary, on
    surrounding receptors
  • Reviewing the existing landscape treatment and identification of areas requiring improvement
  • Review of existing and identification of possible new areas for advertising
  • Preparation of outline proposals and guidelines including a palette of material (both hard and soft)
  • Prioritisation and phasing of proposals
  • Mechanisms to ensure that landscape works are budgeted for within the capital costs of construction projects

ASH then developed detailed landscape proposals for implementation at the airport.
