Over recent years we have seen this sector become prevalent, especially given the recent planning initiatives by Local Authorities. One view is that mixed use developments with a housing component are useful in the revitalisation of town centre environments. These developments meet many demands including promoting the feeling of ‘community living’ with local amenities and activities in close proximity, and encouragement of sustainable modes of transport.
Our in-house skill set and wide sector experience means we are well placed to ensure all key aspects of a mixed use development seamlessly work together for the success of the scheme and area. We understand the importance of community consulting involvement and are used to working closely with the parties involved.
These schemes appear in all shapes and sizes, mixing varying building types and often pushing sustainability boundaries. We are perfectly placed to advise given our in-house capability and long term objectives to promote sustainable building.
