St Andrews Park, Uxbridge

As part of the major redevelopment of the former RAF Uxbridge site in west London, Allen Pyke Associates were appointed to provide landscape consultancy including contributions to an EIA, the preparation of an historic landscape assessment, landscape strategy and design code. As part of the development and in order to ensure the scheme was as sustainable as possible a comprehensive SuDS strategy was developed. This included street design with a range of swales and parks incorporating basins and grassed swales.

Working closely with the project engineers we were able to ensure that the designs remained attractive elements within the public realm as well as providing efficient drainage solutions. In addition we prepared a detailed management plan to ensure all elements within the scheme are able to adapt to the changing nature of the development and in particular the issues associated with heavy rainfall and occasional inundation.
