Rotherham town centre is facing challenges as a consequence of local industry decline and decades of under investment.
Rotherham Council are pursuing a council-led home building program. The town centre, like many in the UK is facing challenges as a consequence of local industry decline and decades of under investment. The council chose to develop homes on three brownfield sites in their ownership. All sites are strategically linked to facilitate private sector development upon completion.
The project was secured via an OJEU process. Due to our relationship with the council and existing knowledge, we were approached by Wilmott Dixon Construction (WDC) to support their bid.
A project to masterplan and deliver three strategic, town centre residential sites, the sites collate to over 200 units covering public realm, apartments, modern ‘back to back’ houses and terraces with an integral landscape led place making model.
The external spaces and landscape will provide a much needed enhancement to the frontage street-scape and offer a visually seamless “green lung” space between the two buildings.
Each building has a unique character, yet between the different parts of the development a harmonious family effect is created amongst them.
