The opening of Llandsyul 3-19 'Super School' for the 2016/2017 academic year marks the completion of this £25 million new-build, 11,200sqm facility, which accommodates 1000 primary and secondary pupils. The project is the largest ever construction project commissioned by Ceredigion County Council, showcasing sustainable design and state of the art technology. Soltys Brewster provided integrated landscape and ecology services from survey through to design development, technical design and construction phase support. Commissioned by Willmott Dixon, the lead D&B contractor, and working closely with Powell Dobson Architects and Cambria engineering. The landscape scheme delivers secure and creative play spaces appropriate to each age group, designed to best practice standards to encourage imaginative play and learning, within a well-defined setting.
Proposals for this flagship venue within Porthcawl's historic harbourside have been submitted to Bridgend County Borough Council. The practice provided a suite of coordinated ecological, landscape and heritage services, including Ecological Appraisal, Landscape and Visual Appraisal, Sustainability Appraisal, Heritage Statement and landscape design in support of an outline planning application. Located on Porthcawl's iconic esplanade and within the historic harbour Conservation Area, the scheme will form part of a vibrant Marina and Harbour Quarter redevelopment.
Landscape, Ecology and Arboricultural assessment and design services supporting the proposed redevelopment of a prime site, located adjacent to the M4 on the eastern edge of Reading. The scheme includes 126 residential apartments in two four storey buildings that overlook a contemporary open space. A framework of existing retained vegetation provides instant screening and assists in integrating the proposed development into the landscape setting. Services included a Landscape and Visual Appraisal, Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey, Bat Emergence Survey, Tree Survey and soft landscape design to support the outline planning application.
