Guest Speaker at Scotland Build Expo 2017


Nick Bowen was invited to speak at the construction expo held at the SECC on 22-23 November, on the subject of Green Infrastructure. This is a subject close to our hearts, and one in which we have growing expertise and experience. The RTPI provide a useful succinct definition of Green Infrastructure : “The term green infrastructure reflects the fact that green spaces can perform a number of functions, often simultaneously…providing us with multiple benefits from one site”. We are currently on site with phase 1 of the green infrastructure network at Bertha Park, constructing a 8,000m2 rainwater pond as centrepiece to the new community park. The New Brunstane project, on which we are producing the landscape masterplan and design code, has been selected as a pilot project for the Building with Nature green infrastructure assessment scheme.
