Altrincham Public Realm

Building on our experience of High Street renewal schemes across the country and utilising our fusion of civil engineering, transport planning, green infrastructure and placemaking, we were appointed alongside landscape architects Planit-IE to deliver significant public realm improvements to streets and squares across a large area of Altrincham town centre.

Our team prepared a Public Realm & Movement Strategy for the market town in 2013, examining how the streets and spaces should be configured to support the economic vitality and attract inward investment for the district centre, showcasing the towns character and heritage, while enabling development opportunities. Following an open competition our team were appointed to design, consult and deliver the physical works set out in the strategy. Phase 1 of the project completed in March 2015; Phase 2 was completed April in 2017; and Phase 3 is due to start on site in late 2018.

Altrincham won the 2018 Best Birtish High Street Award in November. The transformed streets of Altrincham that have helped deliver a 27% increase in footfall and a 22% decrease in vacancy rates.
