Firm to start phase two of landscapes at Lincoln and Nottingham Trent universities
Leeds and Manchester-based public-realm specialist re-form has been engaged to deliver the next phase of campus masterplans at Lincoln and Nottingham Trent universities.
Re-form’s recent work at the University of Lincoln was landscape design of the new £200m Brayford Pool campus. The firm will now undertake the second phase of work including refurbishment of a major public square, public realm improvements and improved routes from Brayford Pool to a new 12.6ha science and innovation park. The aim is to create spaces for social and educational interaction and to encourage students to make the most of campus facilities.
Meanwhile, following the completion at the end of last year for Nottingham Trent University’s ‘heart of the campus’ redevelopment – a central piazza enclosed by two new buildings – re-form will add more public spaces in its strategic masterplan. This will include another new piazza and a student park, with links through to the ‘heart of the campus’. Work is expected to begin on site later this year.
Re-form’s work at Lincoln and Nottingham Trent joins a strong portfolio of higher education work, including public realm strategies and the transformation of public spaces at both the University of Liverpool’s city campus and Preston College, and the design of University Square the University of Leeds.
