People with passion for the outdoors

if we can help you deliver a project

While we have impressive experience and expertise, our driving force is our passion for quality parks, public open spaces and community facilities. We know the health and wellbeing of a community is reflected in its outdoor spaces; the places where people go to play and for fresh air and exercise. These spaces ultimately enhance the ‘existence’ of a community.

To create spaces people love to visit, we help local government workers to deliver innovative solutions for their communities, consulting every community stakeholder in each project to ensure it meets their specific needs. Xyst also has a reputation for getting projects done, with practical, feasible and achievable solutions providing value-for-money outcomes.

The word ‘xyst’ comes from Ancient Greek and referred to long porticos used by athletes for exercise. 

Later the Romans adopted the word, using it to refer to garden walks or terraces.

There has always been a relationship between exercise, good health and the outdoors, which is why we have embraced the word in our company name, acknowledging a tradition that dates back to ancient times.
