Urban Regeneration

Substantial areas of the Midlands and the United Kingdom have sites long overdue for remediation, reclamation and redevelopment.   With wide experience of derelict land renewal projects, the refurbishment of redundant buildings, the improvement of inner city public realm, PCPT has a significant role to play in escalating urban renewal and conservation initiatives.

Our experience covers the reclamation of former industrial land often contaminated and subject to the previous extraction of coal, iron ore, limestone and clay.  Considerable expertise has been gained in waterside locations and the refurbishment and redevelopment of disused buildings, wharfs and harbours.

PCPT has expertise in:

  •   Masterplanning
  •   Development Strategies
  •   Planning Advice and Public Inquiries
  •   Reclamation 

We have carried out inner city ‘enveloping’ involving the upgrading and re-design of existing shopping areas to improve both local trade and the environment.  City centre regeneration schemes that combine housing, shopping, offices and leisure activities reflect urban renewal at its most complete. We have worked on conversions of redundant buildings and the rehabilitation of historic buildings for a variety of uses. Consultants with English Heritage and presentations to the Royal Fine Art Commission have been completed.

A number of prestigious awards testify to our ability as designers.  Since 1959 commissions have covered almost every sector of the construction industry.  Today we offer clients an efficient and integrated service based on accumulated experience.

Our success comes from being locally based, having a good working knowledge of the area and forming close links with the client.  As designers an innovative response to a wide variety of projects has been recognised in a series of awards:
