Walton Locks, Warrington, progress report


Our Walton Locks project with David
Wilson Homes is progressing well. 
The site, comprising of 250 units ranging from 2 bed to 4 bed family
houses, sits on the banks of the Manchester
Ship Canal.

Apartment blocks C and D are now fully complete and occupied while apartment
block E is currently nearing completion. 
Planning Approval has also been recently obtained for the remaining
apartment blocks and for revised houses.
Design were initially appointed to prepare revised Planning Applications for
two apartment blocks and several houses on the site.  We were able to prepare a scheme that added
commercial value for the client, yet in the form of a site responsive solution
which reflects the context of the site and helps to create a real sense of
work has included the redesign and master-planning of approximately half of the
site to create a development with improved public realm, more presence and
connection to the waterfront, linear park and the Trans-Pennine trail which
runs through the site.  We have gone on
to prepare technical drawings and provide on-site support.  We are currently preparing construction
packages for the blocks which are being constructed on a rolling programme.
Sales details are available from the David Wilson Homes website.
