vivian+espie was formed by Carey Vivian and Ben Espie in 2004 combining planning and landscape architecture consultancy services in Queenstown in New Zealand’s Southern Lakes area. This combination of disciplines allows us to offer a comprehensive and integrated approach to environmental planning.
Over the years we have built up experience in all facets of resource management and landscape planning, with a particular emphasis on resource consent applications, plan change applications, assessments of effects on the environment, district plan reviews and presentation of expert evidence before Hearings Panels, Commissioners and Courts. In 2015 we added urban design to our company disciplines. We pride ourselves on our integrity and honest advice.
We have become known for giving frank, up-front advice from the first meeting. In relation to your project, you will get an honest appraisal or what sort of process and expense you can expect from day one.
