Landscape Professional Practice - Hugh Clamp

Gower Technical Press, 1988, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Actually a nice copy with slight fading at the spine of the dust wrapper, but ex-council library with the usual marks including taped on reference sticker to the base of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “The landscape practitioner, faced with increasing competition in both the public and private sector, has never been under greater pressure to promote and maintain a high level of professional competence. This book is therefore essential reading for landscape architects, scientists and leisure and amenity managers who are keen to develop and improve their knowledge and skills in all aspects of landscape practice. It will help the practitioner achieve the best results by offering guidance on the ethical, legal and practical requirements which govern a landscape project; from outline proposal through to final completion.

The author describes in detail the Code of Professional Conduct which governs the appointment of landscape consultants and their relationships with clients, colleagues and competitors. This leads into an explanation of the laws which relate to landscape work; from an individual’s rights to the protection of the environment. In the three final chapters the author systematically describes the documentation required at each stage, the types of contract and their administration.

This unique handbook is an invaluable source of reference for all landscape professionals..”
