We were appointed by Derby City Council to undertake regenerate works on Friar Gate and Wardwick  within Derby City Centre.

In particular, this scheme focussed on improving street scenery around Derby’s Cathedral Quarter.

Friar Gate and Wardwick had become run down and required an extensive overhaul to boost trade and tourism within the area.

All streets were repaved using traditional Yorkshire setts, ensuring completed works kept  in line with surrounding historical buildings.

Original kerbs were reused alongside new granite kerbing to retain the historic character of the area.

Several streets were pedestrianised, reducing vehicular traffic and installation of street furniture completed the scheme.

Significant vehicular and pedestrian traffic management plans were required to ensure safety and minimise disruption, with works phased to ensure diversions etc. could be maintained throughout delivery.

Our Stakeholder Liaison Officer collaborated with Derby City Council and local businesses to ensure minimal disruption throughout the scheme and we were praised for our professionalism throughout.
