LEAP – Landscape Architects and Environmental Planners

LEAP (Imbrilinx CC) was established in 2010 with Dr Gwen Theron as the sole owner of the enterprise. The work includes a variety of aspects at various scales of interventions. Dr Theron comes with a substantial experience in project management in a broad spectrum of public and private projects, ranging from large-scale regional strategic plans to small landscape design and detail implementation.

Dr Theron was the dynamic and enthusiastic Divisional Leader at Golder Associates for the Land Development Unit and before that the Director for Land Development at African EPA and co-owner at @Land Landscape Architects from 1996 to their merger with AEPA.

Gwen’s inspiring strength is her experience in all fields of landscape architecture, which has been nourished by her work and studies abroad and by her theoretical knowledge and background as a senior lecturer at the University of Pretoria and numerous research topics and publications which she has subsequently applied in a wide range of projects in South Africa and abroad.

Her goal for LEAP is its development into a fully functional Landscape Architectural and Environmental Planning firm which focuses on the full spectrum of land development and direct services to clients.
