"We are working with AWP on pre-planning work and detailed infrastructure design on a number of our projects. We like their technical expertise and proactive culture and also their ability to work as part of a team whilst giving their best advice."
Engineering Input to Masterplans
The production of a coherent and integrated masterplan is fundamental to delivering an efficient and cost effective scheme design. Irrespective of the proposed land use correctly assessing the land take needs of highways and drainage solutions at an early stage can save significant time in the preparation of a planning application or a scheme design.
At AWP we work alongside clients, urban designers, architects and masterplanners to ensure that scheme layouts are workable and incorporate best practice wherever required.
Our team have been closely involved with the development of thinking behind Manual for Streets and worked on some of the earliest Home Zone projects in the country. This experience gives us insight into the appropriate requirements for adoptability of layouts whilst not stifling design innovation.
We are also routinely designing schemes incorporating best practice SuDS solutions and so have the experience to help make space for water early in the site appraisal process.
We believe our approach to place-led highways and drainage solutions delivers developments which are of high quality with streets and infrastructure which naturally fit with their surroundings making developments in which people will wish to live and enjoy life to the full.
