Duncan is a chartered landscape architect and recognised practitioner in urban design. He joined LUC in 2001 and became an Associate Director in 2015. He has delivered many of our urban design, masterplanning and public realm projects and often leads LUC input where we work collaboratively as part of large multidisciplinary teams.

Duncan is comfortable working at a variety of scales, from strategic masterplanning to detail design and construction. He is thoughtful and thorough in his approach to design, producing creative but viable design solutions.

He is a talented and experienced designer validated by numerous awards; most recently, in 2016 he won the Landscape Institute Award in the Local Landscape Planning category for his role in leading the Canal Hamiltonhill Development Framework and the ‘What Floats Your Boat?’ Charrette on behalf of Scottish Canals. Duncan advocates the principles of ’placemaking’ and urbanism in all aspects of his work.

Outside work: Duncan is kept busy by his young family although he enjoys sport, especially football and skiing.
