Regeneration Through Retail
The retail sector is a fundamental part of modern life, and one which needs careful planning and implementing with the utmost consideration to the community it will ultimately serve, as well as to the environment.
Our experience shows that a new foodstore or retail development within a district centre correctly orientated to the centre will recapture trade previously lost to large out of town shopping developments or adjoining centres, and stops the flow of shoppers out of the area. In doing so, money is brought back into the local economy and CO2 emissions are reduced through fewer and shorter car journeys.
The majority of our developments incorporate other uses, such as leisure, restaurants and commercial office space, ensuring a long term sustinable future.
And careful attention is paid to the spaces between buildings, improving pedestrian linkages and creating high quality public realm.
Several of our developments have won awards for their impact on the local community as seen in company awards.
