For this project, Pick Everard and Munro & Whitten architects worked seamlessly together to design and implement a new neighbourhood at Littleport. The project was built around a series of small packages of improvement works and demonstrated innovative design in practice for the benefit of people living there.

The brief

The overall aim was to return the streets to the community, creating high quality spaces between the houses. It required innovative design ideas, realised through close collaboration between highway design engineers, architects, landscape consultants, planners and highway development control engineers.

Our response

Our design engineers produced a complete solution that would respond to the local environment and establish a sense of place and community. The project proved to be an excellent example of what collaboration between specialist teams can achieve.

Key facts

  • The project was highly commended at the 2009 Institution of Civil Engineers’ East Midlands Merit Awards.
