Warwick Gates Business Park

Client: JJ Gallagher

Location: Leamington Spa

Warwick Gates Business Park is a prestigious employment site at Leamington Spa, set within a high quality landscape. It is located adjacent to residential development with good access to the surrounding area.

The site comprised a network of hedgerows with a number of mature oak trees which provided a mature setting for the development.

We undertook landscape surveys and appraisals and coordinated arboricultural surveys to inform the scheme design. We also undertook ecological surveys to ensure development proposals met with nature conservation legislation and that building programmes were not delayed.

We prepared landscape and external realm concepts and strategies, and a landscape master plan as part of the site masterplanning and to support the planning application.

We also provided detailed landscape designs and specifications for the implementation stage of the infrastructure and the initial plot developments.

Key design elements comprised good pedestrian and cycle accessibility through the site; coordination with sustainable drainage features; significant structural planting that built upon the existing landscape and biodiversity of the site; landscape buffers to existing residential areas.
