  • Creator History
    Derek Lovejoy & Associates was established by Derek Lovejoy in 1959; it subsequently reformed and became Derek Lovejoy & Partners in 1969. Having spent his early years as a student in Harvard, Derek returned to England to found the firm which he presided over until his retirement in 1988. He was passionate about landscape architecture from the outset and was determined to influence the profession and the future planning of postwar Britain. The firm won contracts worldwide including numerous public and private sector projects in Europe, the Middle East and in Asia. It became one of the largest firms of Environmental Planners in the United Kingdom and won numerous competitions and awards for planning, architecture and landscape architecture. The Partnership was taken over in 2008 by Capita Symonds - the Lovejoy name was retained for a further two years until it was finally dropped.
