We were appointed to undertake a landscape masterplan service for the development of a 500 hectare uninhabited island off the coast of Angola.

200 acres were to be retained as nature reserve containing extensive mangroves and grassland savannah.  300 acres were to be developed as an eco-resort, including two resort hotels, golf facilities, residential housing and associated retail and leisure facilities.

The development of the infrastructure required extensive consideration in order that the energy, water and waste could be accommodated in a sensitive and sustainable way.  The first phase was to include a marina and a servicing compound in addition to a nursery requiring us to develop an advanced procurement strategy.  We worked closely with the golf-course architect to develop a seawater-irrigated golf landscape complete with local, native species.
