We were commissioned by the client to provide detailed information to submit to the local planning authority to satisfy landscape conditions. Due to the significant number of existing trees on site the planners were very interested in the construction details within the root protection zones of existing trees to be retained.

The site is an existing school where a number of structures are being demolished, a number of classroom blocks are being built and the external spaces are rationalised and in certain locations resurfaced.

Within the canopies of the existing trees, where possible, we proposed no dig construction. Where wooden decks were proposed we adopted principals which minimised the likely impact on the roots of the existing trees. We adopted a number of construction techniques to provide the desired surface finish whilst minimising the impact of construction on the existing trees.

The football pitch was remodeled to accommodate excess fill generated by site excavations. We designed this so as to minimise the impact on existing and proposed structures and ensured that adequate circulation space was maintained,

We worked closely with the architect and engineer to ensure our proposals we suitable for their specified end use.
