Continuing a long-term association with the site and Welsh Government, Lingard Farrow Styles have recently provided assistance with a planning application and tender documentation for a proposed manufacturing facility on Offa's Dyke Business Park. The facility is an extension for Invertek Drives Ltd, a local success story, for whom we previously provided a landscape scheme that it is now flourishing. For this new project we coordinated with architects and engineers to provide a site-wide planting plan, ecology survey, landscape and habitat management plan and input towards BREEAM credits. The landscape design includes a planting palette designed to reflect Invertek's corporate colours while providing valuable habitat.
A Welsh Assembly Government Project. This multi-million pound landscape refurbishment to a 76 hectare pre-war industrial estate, incorporated new public footpaths, cycleways, amenity areas, and extensive new planting infrastructure. Individual landscape schemes to new and existing production units were included in the design and management scheme.
Lingard Farrow Styles created a series of photomontages of a poultry unit as part of a planning application. For each photomontage a detailed 3D model of the proposed buildings and landform was constructed, rendered and placed accurately using GPS within high quality photography, also provided by Lingard Farrow Styles.
The project for the enterprise park was part-funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and the site features a factory for CastAlum, a large manufacturer of aluminium vehicle components shipped around the world.
Lingard Farrow Styles provided an assessment of the existing landscape which features veteran oak trees, and developed a landscape strategy which included a substantial attenuation lake and extensive structure planting.
The lake was designed as a backdrop to the site's buildings and this, along with the landscape scheme is now flourishing as a haven for both aquatic and terrestrial wildlife.
