Christopher Palmer and Barrie Scholefield have been working together since Christopher Palmer Associates (CPA) was established in Glasgow in 1984. The two partners had worked together in private practice since 1978. The practice is now a Limited Company and operates from offices in Comrie Perthshire and Paisley Renfrewshire. This allows the practice to access work across Scotland.

CPA is a well respected landscape planning and design company offering a personal service in both urban and rural design, including derelict land renewal, inner city and urban fringe environmental improvement, all aspects of commercial and housing landscape, environmental and habitat assessment and consultancy on agricultural landscape, forestry design and mineral extraction planning.

The practice has built a strong client base and a varied portfolio of work, which has been recognised in awards from BALI, the Civic Trust and the Environmental Regeneration Awards.

The directors enjoy being involved in commissions from start to finish and can bring a wealth of experience to both direct commissions and working in multi-disciplinary teams.

On the technical side the practice has embraced the change from drawing stations to computer stations, which allows a wide range of graphic skills to be brought to projects.
