Mixed use schemes and urban regeneration
Successful regeneration requires dedication, determination and imagination.
We employ all these qualities to plan, develop and execute successful
mixed use schemes in areas that will encourage self-supporting, safe, harmonious
and sustainable communities.
To achieve this we work with stakeholders and local people to develop and tailor specific solutions for each project that recognise the
priorities of all concerned. We believe in starting with the accommodation schedule, not the built form; we develop open spaces that
encourage people interaction and encourage a real sense of community. On each of our schemes we work with the three principle
drivers that ensure sustainable developments are delivered – environment, economy and community. It’s exciting to be within a
business that is equipped for the scale and complexity that are inherent within substantial regeneration projects knowing that the
schemes we deliver make a big difference to the communities of today and tomorrow.
At Barking Central in the Thames Gateway we are delivering some 550 new homes with associated commercial development space
surrounding one of the Mayor of London’s’ top 100 public realms. The scheme includes facilities for the local community, such as a
life long learning centre and a customer first centre. It also embraces significant sustainable facilities with Phase II of the scheme
designed to deliver 20% renewable energies using biomass technology. At Devonport, Plymouth, Redrow is embarking on its first
major development with English Partnerships. Working closely with community stakeholders, Redrow will re-ignite the Devonport
community following its “sectioning” during World War II. The scheme will provide nearly 500 new homes, together with retail,
offices and community facilities, designed to create long-term sustainability.
Redrow regeneration projects are designed to put the heart and soul back into
neglected areas, creating communities and attracting a much needed boost to the
fortunes of the chosen location.
