Commercial Design services

Space 2 Place works on a variety of new and existing developments such as housing, retail parks, offices, industrial units, schools and colleges. This can be concept plan proposals for funding purposes through to detailed design and implementation, undertaking part or all phases of work.

Planning Applications
We are often appointed to work alongside other professionals such as architects, to produce the necessary drawings and information that would satisfy the local authority planners and enable the landscape condition to be released.
Detailed planting plans and specifications are produced as well as a hard landscape plan showing details such as the type of paving, boundary treatments and any site furniture. Materials are chosen that enhance the building and ensure the development is in keeping with its surroundings, which is particularly important if the site is in a Conservation Area.

Arboricultural Surveys
Arboricultural Surveys of existing trees on sites can be undertaken to help determine which trees are worthy of retention. We can also demonstrate to the Local Authority how these are to be protected during construction, in accordance with BS 5837: 2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction – Recommendations.

Working Drawings and Contract Administration
We can then produce the necessary drawings and documents for the construction, as well as undertake contract administration if required.

BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes
Space 2 Place can also produce landscape and management plans to support sustainable building and refurbishment projects to maximise credits and wildlife benefits.
