CDS partner with several architectural consultancies who each have considerable experience in designing commercially viable parks and open space developments that are imaginative, functional and in keeping in with the local landscape.
We work closely with our clients at every stage, using our experience to help shape and create the initial design brief before undertaking the conceptual design works. Occasionally, we are approached to deliver a scheme that already has planning approval. In such situations we endeavour to add value in ways that are sensitive to the existing scheme, within the agreed budget and without reinventing the wheel.
CDS continue to push the boundaries of design. We are committed to making future developments carbon neutral and, in line with new government guidance, aim to achieve a biodiversity net gain. We help clients achieve this by introducing new eco-friendly products which reduce embodied carbon emissions associated with some construction materials and we strive to increase the proportion of material from renewable sources.
Whilst the design of the building associated with parks and sports hubs play a huge role in the look and feel of a new development, it is the forming, shaping and planting of the surrounding landscape that ensures the building has empathy with its environment.
CDS work closely with the architects and designers to ensure that the landform around the new development creates distinctive spaces. Informed by professionals they offer distance, physically and psychologically from everyday demands with opportunities to remember. The planting integrates the development into the wider landscape and transforms existing spaces into refuges of biodiversity where visitors feel attachment and can relax and reflect.
