PORTFOLIO

SJ STEPHENS ASSOCIATES PROJECTS

We drew up a Tree Safety Policy and carry out annual Tree Hazard Assessments  for this 500ha site, attracting 200,000 visits each year.

A development, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where arboricultural site supervision helped ensure an environment enhanced by retained mature trees.

We prepared a Tree Constraints Plan and Arboricultural Impact Assessment  covering over 100ha for award-winning heritage developer City & Country.

We prepared an Arboricultural Method Statement for construction of new car parks at Stourhead for the National Trust.

We have provided arboricultural consultancy for nine capital works projects since 2008, including the dining hall, sports centre, junior school and new all-weather pitches.

We carry out regular tree hazard inspections  for grounds in Kensington, Hampstead and Highgate for Faraday Property Management Ltd.

We used internal decay detection, root examination and amelioration to allow retention of a mature wellingtonia - a focal feature of a new development.

Heckfield Woodland

We supported a planning application to convert an area of coniferous plantation, natural openings and broadleaved woodland into a “glamping” site with a woodland management plan which was critical to the success of the application.

A new build house, where extensive gardens were designed and created from scratch on a bare site - including hard and soft landscaping, plant procurement and supervision of contractors.

Sonning Common

We prepared an Arboricultural Impact Assessment for a new garage, constructed within the Root Protection Area of a protected oak tree. No-dig construction was used with a raised concrete slab. Rainwater from the roof is fed back under the slab to maintain moisture levels.

Dulwich College

We surveyed all trees on the main college site in 2013 and produced a Tree Constraints Plan which helped to inform the college’s development plans. Arboricultural Impact Assessments have since been undertaken for a new Science Building, a link building between two boarding houses and for a landscape masterplan.

We prepared a Tree Constraints Plan to assist with the design of flood defences through three parks containing a large number of rare and champion trees. An Arboricultural Impact Assessment was then prepared and arboricultural site supervision undertaken throughout the implementation phases.

We prepared a woodland management plan to support a planning application to create a retirement community on the site of a former edwardian estate, more recently used for holiday chalets. The 25 year plan will regenerate neglected woodland, improve amenity value and biodiversity, while opening up paths and a folly, “lost” since the 1930’s.

We prepared a Tree Constraints Report to inform a new landscape masterplan for the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich

 

Since 2010, we have worked on over 80 projects for a single firm of architects, based in Wiltshire. Although these include a number of sizable developments, the majority have been single house or house extension projects

RHS-Gardens-Wisley

RHS Wisley

We have worked on five separate projects at RHS Wisley, including providing tree constraints information for a masterplan for the new Welcome Building, entrance and car parks and preparing an Arboricultural Impact Assessment for the new centre for Horticultural Science and Learning.
