Development & Regeneration

­

Newcastle Science Central

Newcastle Science Central is a new science-themed urban quarter in the heart of Newcastle, which occupies the 20ha former Tyne Brewery site. Part of a multidisciplinary team, we were the landscape architect behind the public realm design and associated statutory consents for the development. The brief defined strong aspirations for a distinctive high-quality public realm which promotes [...]

Planning and Design for Leisure & Sports Facilities

We have a strong track record in delivering sports facilities, often within highly constrained areas. We understand how to deliver our client’s brief whilst factoring in key considerations such as ecology, heritage and landscape. Some of our successes Benenden School appointed us to prepare and submit an application to construct a flood-lit all-weather pitch and [...]

The Heartlands Project

Sustainable design as a catalyst for regeneration. The Heartlands Project is a community-led vision to transform 7.5ha of Cornwall’s most derelict industrial landscape into a truly inspirational cultural attraction. We won an international competition to masterplan and design an imaginative mixed-use site that celebrated the culture of Cornwall and became a catalyst for regeneration. Our [...]

Measuring local progress in climate adaptation

The National Adaptation Programme (NAP) assigns local government the responsibility for helping districts adapt to climate risk, with priorities being raising awareness, building capacity and promoting action on climate change. The Committee on Climate Change is monitoring NAP implementation and reporting to Parliament. We were commissioned, in partnership with JBA Consulting, to find out how [...]

University of Glasgow Protected Species Advice

Balancing bat roosts, cityscape and future development priorities. The University of Glasgow’s Gilmorehill campus in the west end of Glasgow is an iconic feature of the city skyline. However, despite its heritage and tradition, the campus is evolving to better reflect the needs of its student body and research operations. As part of ongoing work [...]

Visibility and Shadow Flicker Assessment

Demonstrating exactly how visible your development will be. Our digital designers use visibility mapping tools such as ESRI Spatial and 3D Analyst to support a range of projects, from renewable energy and infrastructure schemes to heritage setting assessments. Generating zones of theoretical visibility (ZTV) to demonstrate a development’s potential visibility is fundamental to offshore seascape [...]

Wood Farm Housing Development

Guiding the successful development of a sensitive site. The Wood Farm site in Harrow previously comprised a farm and rubbish tip, forming an expanse of publicly inaccessible open space surrounded by Country Park. Several unsuccessful planning applications had sought to develop part of the site for residential development and new public open space. The site [...]

The Level

Transforming a deprived city park into an exciting, inclusive and popular urban asset The Level, a city centre park in Brighton, had a confused layout, had fallen into misuse and suffered general degradation. As lead consultants on its reinvention, we were involved from the inception of the stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund bid and feasibility [...]

The Eden Project

How do you make economic botany interesting to teenagers? Who cares where coffee comes from? The Eden Project has reinvented how a botanic garden works, what it is for and who it needs to reach. A disused quarry was transformed into one of the UK’s most popular visitor attractions and a leading educational botanical resource. [...]
