Greengate Exchange redevelopment
Following the success of a previous appointment to develop the initial phase proposals for the Greengate Public Realm, Sweco were appointed as lead consultants to take the Public Realm Phase 2 element of the Greengate Exchange redevelopment proposals forward through planning to detailed design and construction. Sweco worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team undertaking the public realm design, highway design, ecology and geo-environmental design.
The Public Realm is seen as a catalyst for further investment to develop the wider Greengate Exchange site, which has already received £200m from interested developers.
Historically known as the centre of Salford, the site holds great importance for residents and tourists alike. To illustrate this significance, references to historic monuments and visual landmarks were integrated into the detailing of design elements and materials. The scheme also includes an integrated approach to the design of the highway and public realm around the periphery of the site to ensure the site complements the surrounding area.
Our landscape solutions for this project included:
- Landscape masterplanning
- Outline design
- Stakeholder engagement
- Shared surfaces
- Ecology & habitat creation
