FPCR have provided the landscape design, ecological and environmental consultancy services for the prestigious Nottingham Business Park. The site is located on the A6002, western outer loop road close to Junction 26 of the M1.
The scheme is a high quality and low density parkland campus , comprising a comprehensively designed landscape framework with detailed plot specific proposals. Half of the overall site area (23.5 Ha) is dedicated to landscape and ecological objectives and includes extensive woodland planting, open areas of parkland, grasslands and new ponds and water features.
At the heart of the scheme is a conserved former orchard that has been carefully redesigned to act as a key public space within the development. This includes a focal sculpture, with high quality paving and seating and a framework of new fruit trees.
Avenues of semi mature trees and associated hedgerows and planting were undertaken as part of the initial site infrastructure.
