Outdoor modernisation means making a campus more walkable
The University of Strathclyde had an ambition—to enhance their city centre campus with re-landscaping and pedestrianisation. But the project would involve a significant amount of appraisal and evidence collection, including funding applications to Sustrans (a walking and cycling charity) and support for a planning permission in principle application.
We coordinated multi-disciplinary services for the estates services team including collecting baseline information and evidence for change as well as modelling junctions and showing the implications of removing through-traffic. We also worked on engagement in pre-application discussions with Glasgow City Council, liaised with the architect and landscape architect on emerging designs, and completed the phase 1 and phase 2 investigations across geo-technical, ecology, transport, and utilities. When it came to flood risk and drainage, we prepared a sustainable urban drainage system (SuDS) strategy for collecting surface water and limiting discharge.
Our funding application for the University—which included the City of Glasgow College and the Glasgow City Council—successfully obtained funding for options appraisal, site investigations, and site surveys. With these services and enhancements, the University of Strathclyde city centre campus will enhance the physical environment for a significant student population.
