The TCL Group is launching a new service to help housebuilders with public open space and parks projects.
The landscaping and estate management specialists already has a track record in working with developers, local authorities and environmental organisations to deliver complex multi-faceted public schemes. The one stop shop service, which launches on early February, is aimed at enabling housebuilders to perform often complex and highly emotive installations successfully and cost effectively and will cover every stage and all aspects of the project.
The service will be led by TCL Group Technical Director Jonathan Highley, pictured above, who explained: “Over the last few years TCL has supported many housebuilder groups with planning support, local authority negotiation, landscape design and installation of all the component parts of public open areas, specifically in relation to sports pitches, cycle paths, bridleways, country parks and play provision.
“With careful planning, product selection, smart timing of installations and local authority negotiation we have been able save housebuilders many hundreds of thousands of pounds and deliver some incredibly successful ‘placemaking’ projects which we think will appeal to national housebuilding groups.
“This new part of group will look to build upon the vast experience we have within the business and will be dedicated to supporting housebuilders with this specific requirement.”
The TCL Group’s experience includes multi-million pound public open space projects nationwide as well as SANGS (Suitable Accessible Natural Green Space) sites. The company works regularly with developers such as Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon, David Wilson Homes and Redrow Homes.
Jonathan added: “Our offering is aimed at ensuring public open space areas are designed and presented in a way that will provide a reason to select, not reject, a property on a particular development.”
The new service will operate nationwide using the TCL Group’s regional operational network.
