Royston – Fish Hill Square

Working in partnership with North Hertfordshire District Council and landscape architects Building Design Partnership, we were awarded the Fish Hill Square Royston town centre regeneration project.

Overview

It was fundamental to the project that we worked closely with the local businesses and community. Access to local businesses had to be maintained throughout with corresponding signage in place.

The scheme demanded the complete repaving of the square and surrounding streets with high quality granite to give a strong finish, both visually and structurally. We also installed an attenuation tank to act as a flood defence mechanism for surface water runoff in the area.

Resurfacing works to surrounding carriageways took place at night to minimise disruption to local businesses around the Square. We also concentrated on the finer details of the landscape; installing street furniture such as bespoke benches, architectural lighting and the planting of 6 trees to add greenery to the surroundings.

Finally, we were delighted to take on the design development, manufacture and installation of a new sculpture to celebrate the archaeological heritage of Royston. The sculpture’s concept design came from a local school competition. We worked hard to ensure that disruption to residents, businesses, and visitors to Royston was kept to a minimum throughout our scheduled 12 week period of work.

This was another project that benefited from strong supply chain partners whose quality and professionalism kept the project on time and within budget.
