The joint venture between the University of Worcester and developer, Wrenbridge, intends to develop a 47 acre site - University Park - to enable future expansion and integration with a science and enterprise park, which has three distinct areas: learning, business and enterprise and health.

  • A vision to create a connected, high quality, vibrant landscape, threaded with a common language of design, which is adaptable in use and establishes a unified setting for the multi-use of the University Park, Worcester.

Project Benefits

  • Strong facilitating skills with multiple stakeholders ensured a unified approach to design - With more than a dozen stakeholders involved in the project, it was essential that One’s landscape architectural team collaborated with everyone involved to ensure maximum engagement and agreement. This benefitted the project as a robust yet sensitive design was achieved that will be a lasting legacy for the City of Worcester.
  • The client was able to submit for planning within a very short timeframe - As One’s landscape architects have a very proactive approach to their projects, this led to a complex landscape strategy being developed in just a matter of months, before being submitted to, and approved by, the City Council planners.
  • Flexible design to ensure commercial viability - Initially planned to include a park and ride scheme for the city, One adapted the design when one of the key stakeholders withdrew from the project.

Project Overview

One’s landscape masterplanners were tasked with creating a unified, high quality landscape setting with a distinct campus identity to ensure the long term marketing success and viability of the campus.
