Transforming town centres, streets and parks

flower bank in bloom

We have over 30 years’ experience in doing everything from creating parks to improving streets and town centres. From high streets to cycle lanes to playgrounds: we can do it all. We are a market leader in the field.

Working together with local authorities and other organisations, we help to enhance the environment and preserve its character. We design places where people can take a break, have a walk and meet friends.

We like to make great areas that the people can people can enjoy. Having nicer streets and parks helps to make people’s lives better, encourages the economy and discourages anti-social behaviour.

We always plan our work carefully to minimise the impact on the local community. And we keep cities moving, by developing and implementing traffic management plans – many in London’s commercial and tourist centres.

Letchworth town centre

We created, and maintained, 100 hectares of parkland for London 2012, with its eye catching wild flower meadows.

Right in the heart of London, just by Tower Bridge and next to the Mayor of London’s office, we help created something striking in the centre of the capital. With special water features, over 100 55-year old trees and new seating areas and lights, it’s a place for everyone to enjoy.

We helped transform the centre of Letchworth, with an impressive new water feature, new benches and a range of other improvements.
