Multi-disciplinary services have shaped the masterplan for a healthy and sustainable urban extension

When Taylor Wimpey wanted to promote a new sustainable community on the edge of Bristol, they brought us in to support. As a key member of the design team, we are providing services in transport, engineering, drainage, utilities, ecology, ground conditions, noise and vibration, air quality, sustainability, energy, and waste.

Our work to date has established The Vale as an exemplary new community, with a mix of employment, retail, education, and social uses within a walkable neighbourhood structure. The design maximises the benefits of new transport infrastructure as well as supports the delivery of Bristol’s transport vision through improved bus services, a new park and ride, and the potential for a new railway station. Land is safeguarded for a future light rapid transit route between the City Centre and Bristol Airport, and a flexible approach has been incorporated into the masterplan so the development can embrace changes to travel behaviour over time.

In addition, our collaborative work on ecology and drainage has created a multi-functional blue-green infrastructure network which offers enhanced habitat corridors, attractive recreational areas, and flood management. The result? A mixed-use sustainable community that extends Bristol’s residential opportunities.
