Triple award recognition at the Landscape Institute Awards 2023
Congratulations to our team, who celebrated successes at the Landscape Institute Awards 2023 with three award wins for projects we have worked on, including recognition for Mayfield Park and St Albans Cathedral Sumpter Yard Revived.
Mayfield Park, which is Manchester city centre’s first new public park in more than 100 years, scooped an award for ‘Excellence in Place Regeneration’. The judges praised Mayfield Park as “a wonderfully executed project, from start to finish, which puts green and blue infrastructure at the heart of urban regeneration.”
Delivered for The Mayfield Partnership, the public park is part of a £1.4 billion regeneration project across Mayfield, which Studio Egret West are the urban designers and lead architects for. We were appointed as structural and civil engineers for the park, and acted as lead designer for the delivery team led by PP O’Connor, also collaborating with Gillespies, Layer and Buro Happold on the project, which opened last year.
Mayfield Park was also recognised for ‘Excellence in Landscape Design’, and the judges commented that “the collaboration and professionalism working across stakeholders is exemplary, especially considering the heritage constraints of the site.”
Completing the hattrick of awards, St Albans Cathedral Sumpter Yard Revived won the ‘Excellence in Heritage and Culture’ award, which recognises projects which protect and preserve both natural and built heritage.
Our London team provided structural and civil engineering support for the project by landscape architect J & L Gibbons, which impressed the judges with its “skillful integration of historic fabric and setting, which adds to the experience of the Cathedral.”
Celebrating the incredible work of landscape professionals, the awards recognise people, places and nature, and the ways that landscape projects can connect them. A huge congratulations to all involved!
