Urban Regeneration

Wharfside Business Park

Trafford Park Development Corporation.
As term consultant working for TPDC we carried out a number of Landscape projects within Trafford Park to improve its public image, aimed at attracting new development into the Business Park. Works included areas of ornamental and structure planting, avenues of trees, informal recreation areas, boundary fencing & the integration of public art features within the schemes.

Barrow Gateway Project

Development of Landmark building by Barrow Borough Council to provide quality office facilities and to encourage commercial regeneration within the changing townscape. The external areas around the building are designed to provide a high quality Public Open space linking the public and private usage of the site. Works include the revitalisation of an existing public park and the introduction of Public Art and a water feature.

Quayside Walkway, Trafford Park: TPDC

Creation of high profile walkway along the Manchester Ship Canal sited on the original elevated grain wharf. The decorative hard landscape provides a setting for public art features and is a pedestrian route up to the New Imperial War Museum. This scheme now links with the bridge over the Ship Canal to the Lowry Museum and all the associated developments within Salford Quays.

ICI Banks Lane & Main Gate, Runcorn: ICI Chlor Chem.

Landscape enhancement works at ICI's plant in Runcorn need to be robust to cope with the inhospitable environment made up from contaminated ground, potential chemical escapes and an exposed maritime location. These striking "gateway" features were designed to cope with the conditions, have low maintenance requirements and create strong visual impact which would enhance the environment and improve the environment around the works.
