Staff Paul S
Senior Landscape Architect BLA (Hons), NZILA Registered Ōtautahi Christchurch
Paul joined RMM in 2019 after becoming a Registered member of the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects. He has over ten years experience specialising as a landscape planner, working on projects throughout all of Aotearoa New Zealand, but mostly the South Island. In the past few years Paul has and continues to work on numerous solar farm projects throughout the country, a project typology he really enjoys being involved in.

As a Landscape Planner, Paul has prepared landscape assessments for an array of projects including plan changes, the identification of ONL lines, small and large scale subdivisions, commercial developments, solar farms, quarry extensions, water and wastewater infrastructure, cycleways, boardwalks and roading projects. Subsequently, Paul has presented expert evidence at council hearings and the Environment Court as he has worked through the lifecycle on a number of these projects.

Outside of work, Paul is busy being a new father, and when he can, road cycling and mountain biking in Christchurch and around the Port Hills.
