Multifunctional landscapes are becoming increasingly popular and are providing a creative way to adapt green spaces. Whilst visiting a park recently we noticed that on the surface of it it was an attractive place for people to visit, take their daily exercise, meet up with friends and family (whilst observing current social distancing guidelines). However, when you look closer the centre of the park was a large attenuation basin, with the sides reinforced, storm gullies and drains carefully obscured from view. The native planting throughout the park provided habitat for a wide variety of wildlife, with both bird and insect life evident. So whilst this park provides amenity, recreational and health benefits to the local community, it also provides storm water attenuation, ecological benefits and air pollution benefits.
Our multidisciplinary team often combines various requirements, whilst work along side other professions in order to provide multifunctional landscapes. If you would like any further information or assistance with a project please contact us.
