Student housing completed at University of Hertfordshire

Landmark is pleased to announce successful completion of a phased programme of work for the University of Hertfordshire which we commenced in 2012.

Landscape Illustrative Masterplan (2014)

landscape-masterplan-hertsWorking on behalf of the University of Hertfordshire with Wilmore Iles Architects and Bouygues UK, our landscape team has overseen the Landscape Design for the phased development of 2,511 units along with communal areas and student facilities.

By concentrating the new buildings and associated vehicle movements around the perimeter of the site, the size and value of the central green space has been maximised as an exciting major resource for the entire campus to enjoy. This green space incorporates places for informal play, sport and relaxation, and provides a tranquil heart at the centre of the campus.

Landmark ecologists have undertaken detailed surveys and monitoring throughout the build programme, and have worked with the landscape team to maximise the wildlife value of the site. With use of species rich turf and plant palettes, wildflower meadows, new aquatic habitats, tree planting and connectivity with green corridors, the scheme looks set to achieve the BREEAM excellent rating.
