Better Places Award

Liverpool Waterfront project shortlisted for national CIHT ‘Creating Better Places’ award

We are delighted to announce that our Liverpool City Centre Waterfront project: The Strand has been shortlisted for the CIHT Creating Better Places Award 2022

This has been a ground-breaking collaborative design project over the last few years with our friends at Amey Consulting and Liverpool City Council.

The winners of the category will be announced at the CIHT Awards Ceremony 2022 – taking place on the 7 September 2022 at the London Marriot Hotel.

This award recognises how outstanding design and implementation of schemes in our towns and cities improve the places around them and create places for people.

The panel have shortlisted exemplary schemes from across the country that enhance their neighbourhoods, integrate with communities and are inclusive. Considering transport planning, design, construction, sustainability, accessibility, safety and wellbeing, and climate action.

The Strand is at the epicentre of Liverpool’s renowned waterfront, surrounded by Grade II* listed buildings including the Liver Building, part of the iconic ‘Three Graces’

The regeneration scheme exemplifies the very best of green infrastructure projects, providing a new sustainable urban drainage system with on-going data analysis for storm waterflow, water filtration and air quality by Liverpool University, keeping us connected via safer walkways, new pedestrian squares, segregated cycle lanes and introducing large canopies of trees and celebrating the city’s heritage.

The project contributes to the mitigation of climate change risks, increases the resilience to climate change effects, improves health and well-being and improves air quality and biodiversity.
