Recent drone footage has captured the site progress at Mayfield Manchester, where construction of the city's first public park in 100 years is underway.

Our role on this major regenerative project includes leading the landscape design for Mayfield Park and the surrounding public realm strategy. Here, our ‘nature first’ proposals include opening up the River Medlock, allowing nature to finds its way into the city, creating new riverside habitats and providing a flood plain that can accommodate climate-change scenarios. The planting design of this floodable park is being shaped with the future in mind, pre-empting the likely climate shift of 1-2 degrees, and the hard materials will either be recycled or sourced locally to minimise carbon footprint.

We're also the urban designers behind the wider £1.4b Mayfield framework and architects for the first phase multi-storey car park. The plans are being delivered by The Mayfield Partnership, a joint venture between regeneration specialist U+I (U and I Group PLC), Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and developer LCR.
