Pell Frischmann Appoints New Landscape Design & Assessment Lead

We are pleased to announce that Graham Lee has recently joined Pell Frischmann to lead the newly formed Landscape Design & Assessment team. With over 25 years of experience in the environmental and landscape sector and a Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute, Graham brings a wealth of expertise to Pell Frischmann.

Prior to this role, Graham served as Technical Director of Landscape Architecture & Urban Design at WSP. He has also held several other senior positions in both private and public sectors. Some of his notable roles include serving as Regional Lead for Planning, Landscape and Stakeholder Engagement (at Wood), Head of Environment for the M25 DBFO Contract (at Atkins), and as Regional Environmental Advisor to National Highways.

Regarding his appointment, Graham Lee said:

I am happy and excited to have joined Pell Frischmann, and to have been given a remit to explore, identify and develop opportunities to grow the Landscape capability and specialism for the company, so we can offer an enhanced service in this area to both our project teams and our clients. I am confident in my ability to deliver this outcome, especially as the sectors in which I have particular expertise are also those that Pell Frischmann works across.

In his new role as Head of Landscape, Graham intends to build on his expertise in landscape planning, design and management, landscape-led master planning, and environmental enhancement, across transport and utility infrastructure projects as well as urban expansion and regeneration projects, in all stages of project delivery, including strategy, planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, improvement, decommissioning and restoration.

Graham also has particular expertise in green infrastructure, having spent much of his career working to realise opportunities that both infrastructure and natural assets provide to create inter-connected and multi-functional green infrastructure networks or nature-based solutions. This particular focus and skillset greatly complement our existing ecology and biodiversity offer.

He has also been involved in a range of DCO and other major infrastructure projects including Heathrow Airport (Third Runway), North London Heat and Power, Rampion 2, Hinkley Point C, as well as Manston Airport and Drax BECCS, where he acted as Expert Witness for Landscape during the DCO Examination hearings. In addition, he has worked on major projects abroad, both from the UK and “in-country”, including NEOM, Al Sudah, and Al Ula (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), Prince Henry at Little Bay (Sydney, Austalia), and Bukit Jelutong (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia).

David Thomson, Pell Frischmann’s Environment Sector Director said:

I am delighted by the appointment of Graham as the head of our new Landscape Design & Assessment Team. This is a strategic and significant step in our journey towards diversifying our environmental consultancy offer in accordance with our ‘5 Year Plan’. Graham’s skillset and vast industry experience will be an enormous asset to the whole of Pell Frischmann but, in particular, our focus on sustainable carbon-neutral developments, biodiversity and nature-based solutions across all of our projects.
