Biography

Ken Nicolson has 27 years of experience in landscape architecture and landscape planning in Hong Kong.  He spent 10 years with EBC Hassell Limited and established his own landscape consultancy in 1994.  His detailed knowledge of Government procedures and standards is gained from a wide variety of landscape planning and design projects.

As project landscape architect for the North Lantau Development Study for TDD, he prepared the landscape masterplan, landscape design guidelines and recreation and conservation strategy for Tung Chung New Town. Major EIAs include; detailed landscape and visual impact assessment for the Tung Chung to Ngong Ping cable car project, preparing landscape restoration proposals and specialist contract supervision for the CLP 400kV powerline from Daya Bay, and route selection and restoration proposals for the Towngas Lantau Link.

In addition to landscape planning and environmental studies, he has been responsible for the masterplanning, detail design and contract supervision of numerous, diverse landscape projects for recreation, commercial, residential and infrastructure developments in Hong Kong and overseas. Ken has completed many successful submissions to ACABAS for bridges, noise barriers and subways throughout Hong Kong. He has led design teams on major Government landscape contracts spending two years as Resident Landscape Architect to oversee the completion of three district parks.

Ken attained his PhD at The University of Hong Kong in 2005 and is now Associate Professor teaching in the Master of Science in Conservation Programme in the Faculty of Architecture.  He completed the same course with distinction in 2002 and is keen to expand his practice to specialise in heritage conservation projects.
