McParland Finn Ltd is delighted to be sponsoring the ‘Design for a Medium Scale Development Award’ at the LI Awards 2018.

The addition of new award categories, attracting a record-breaking number of entries, will see all landscape disciplines recognised at this year’s prestigious ceremony.

The LI’s annual awards recognise the exceptional work of landscape professionals and encourage excellence, innovation, and creativity in shaping the natural and built environment.

This year’s event is open to non-members of the LI as well as members. The ceremony will take place on Thursday 22 November 2018 at The Brewery, London, EC1Y 4SD. Tickets are now on sale.

Adam White, President of the Landscape Institute said of the LI Awards 2018:

‘As the professional body representing the landscape profession, these awards provide an opportunity for us to really showcase the importance of creative and innovative landscape design, planning and management. We want to inspire the profession to deliver projects that truly benefit people and place not just for today also to inspire future generations.

‘We want to see projects that respond to the environmental challenges we face and help share knowledge and ideas so that landscape architects are seen to offer sustainable ways of living to the communities they serve.’

‘We are extremely pleased to announce Florence Williams as keynote speaker this year, as she has a particular interest in promoting nature as a catalyst for health and creativity.’

‘Landscapes can promote positive mental and physical wellbeing, and in an era of children having reduced access to outdoor space, it is fantastic to consider how many public benefits are highlighted in the Award entries. We are looking forward to the Awards and can’t wait to reveal the incredible entries that have been shortlisted this year.’

It is over 20 years since McParland Finn Ltd created Landscape Institute Insurance Services, to serve the membership in respect of their insurance requirements.

The cover offers under our facility provide Members with protection for their Assets, Earnings and Liabilities, both professional and corporate, including the threat imposed by an ever-increasing reliance on the use of technology and the internet (Cyber).

Over this period, we have witnessed the significant development of the Institute in all regards; the LI Awards 2018 Ceremony is a testament to that development and, as a consequence, we are delighted to continue our support.
