We were appointed by Derby City Council to undertake a civic scheme to improve access to new facilities from both Corporation Street and Derwent Street.

Significant pedestrian traffic management systems were put in place due to location of works; in the centre of Derby next to major public transport hubs.

Works included the removal of dilapidated paving and repaving with a mix of decorative stone types, and installation of granite kerbing.

Carriageway planing and resurfacing was also undertaken along a section of a major bus route, requiring significant traffic management to ensure both safety of our workforce and minimum disruption for surrounding businesses.

We also installed a series of access improvements to the Council House, including new steps and an access ramp. Drainage, ducting and street furniture were installed complete with signage, handrails, railings, benches and waste bins.

We continued the paving works to the rear of the Council House, improving a section of the River Gardens, linking to another project to provide a raw water extraction facility from the River Derwent, acting as a natural coolant system for the refurbished Council offices.
