The practice has over twenty five years' experience of writing for publication for general, business and academic audiences, including provision of photographic material. Information can also be given through lecturing to audiences ranging through the public, post-graduates and academic conferences, again areas benefiting from over a quarter of a century of experience. Exhibition material has also been provided, and consultancy undertaken for television production. Details of publications are on the Past Work page.

Lectures and seminars can be provided in all the specialist areas of this consultancy, which  are the history of water supply and pollution, the evolution of contaminated land and brownfield policy, and landscape history. They can be used for post-graduates and for professionals at all levels in a variety of areas, for example engineering, architecture, construction, water supply and disposal, conservation and planning. Raymond Smith has been trained in adult education techniques at the Universities of Surrey and Sussex, and has given post-graduate seminars at universities across England and Wales.

The videos that have been produced have been on architectural and landscape history, for example “Windows into Venice” on the Brooking Collection’s preparations for the 14th Venice Architectural Biennale. Others are linked from the Past Work page.
