Education and Health


In times of increasing budget constraints across primary, secondary and tertiary education facilities, we find innovative ways of creating impact and sustainable solutions to make the best possible use of our client's assets and resources. We strive to enhance life and learning opportunities through thoughtful and creative landscape design. At all educational stages, external spaces are essential resources for discovery, social learning and play outside the classroom or lecture hall and contribute to an institution's sense of place as well as students' belonging, health, well being and attainment.

Education and health professionals know that interaction with nature and physical exercise contribute positively to our health and well-being. At Allen Scott we support this notion and bring our skills, knowledge and commitment to help public, private and third sector clients make the most of physical, environmental and economic resources for their communities, enhancing mental health, promoting exercise and healing landscapes that enable people to forge new lifestyles, friendships and connections.
