Going, going………gone! The Union Street footbridge in Plymouth, connecting the Pavilions & car park above the Toys R Us building had been a part of Plymouth’s urban scene for decades. On the night of November 7th, it was removed & demolished as part of Plymouth’s ongoing regeneration & development. A double crane lift & overnight road closure were required & significant pre-planning & close liaison with the Client & Principal Contractor were a fundamental part of our Principal Designer services.

We are pleased to be involved in Primrose Hill at Torquay which achieved practical completion last week. Primrose Hill is a new development by Cavanna Homes which included forty eight dwellings for Aster Homes. These comprise 35 houses & 13 flats - this very popular development is only a few hundred yards from the Willows shopping centre on the edge of Torquay. The scheme is distinctive in its selection of pastel coloured renders & close board finish appropriate for its location in the seaside town of Torquay on the English Riviera #GatesConsultants
