A cycle ride between BDP offices across the UK in her honour of is also planned to take place in late spring as one of several events to mark BDP’s 50th anniversary, with the proceeds from sponsorship going to charities of Jo’s parents’ and boyfriend, Greg Reardon’s choice.
BDP will also sponsor an annual landscape design prize in her memory for students at the University of Gloucestershire School of Landscape & Environment.
Keith Pavey, Head of BDP’s Bristol Studio, said: “It is now over seven weeks since Jo was so tragically taken from us and it is still difficult to come to terms with her untimely and unnecessary death. We have been overwhelmed by the many messages of condolence and sympathy we have received from our clients and colleagues in the construction industry.
“We will not forget Jo and we hope the above will collectively become a lasting tribute to her.”
