Public Realm

At Greenford Ltd we are fortunate enough to be able to work with a range of clients including those in the public realm. With public realm works we are presented an opportunity to contribute to the infrastructure of a community, and working with local authorities has meant we have been able to improve public spaces for the benefit of many cities, towns and villages across England.

Footbridge, Hinksey Park, Oxford

In June 2018 Greenford were asked by Oxford Direct Services (ODS) to undertake the construction of a new pedestrian bridge within a public park close to central Oxford. It also included the removal of the old bridge and the installation of a temporary bridge and footpath during the works. Greenford constructed and installed the footbridge in a timber and steel construction. The client was extremely pleased with the workmanship of the new footbridge and with the way the site was ran by the team, throughout the duration of the project.

The Grange Field, Bishops Cleeve

In 2018 Greenford were appointed by Tewkesbury Borough Council to carry out the improvement and maintenance of The Grange Field, a large area of public open space, near Grange Approach in Bishop’s Cleeve, three miles north of Cheltenham.  As part of the work Greenford dispensed with the previous watercourse and diverted a new channel into the area. The regeneration was implemented in order to help reconnect the community with open space, water and wildlife. The project will enhance the area for many years to come, with a meandering watercourse, wetland, wild flower meadow, walkways and bridges.

Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead

Autumn 2015 saw Greenford Ltd complete works with the Dacorum Borough Council to rejuvenate the Marlowes pedestrianised shopping area and Bank Court in Hemel Hempstead’s town centre. This project involved the complete reworking of a busy pedestrian zone and space occupied by markets and shop frontages and required ongoing consideration and consultation with the public, local residents and business owners. Greenford’s work on the Marlowes pedestrianised shopping area is approximately £4 million of the £30 million budget for Dacorum Borough Council’s entire evolution of Hemel Hempstead’s town centre.

Waterside Development, Aylesbury Town Centre

In 2014, working with the Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC), Greenford completed construction on the waterside redevelopment in the Aylesbury town centre. This ambitious project saw the removal of the town’s marina from the city centre and the resulting regeneration of the Aylesbury Canal Basin alongside the AVDC’s newly constructed Waitrose and Travelodge developments. The rejuvenation of this area, which opens onto the new Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, has created a modern, clean and open flow between the public spaces, vastly increasing thoroughfare and utilisation of this attractive, waterside location.

Waterway Regeneration, Maidenhead

A decade in the making, the regeneration of the Maidenhead waterways is a project very close to the heart of local residents and businesses alike. The works started with the reinstatement of the waterway from York Road to the library footbridge section of the York Stream channel, and continued up and downstream thereafter to complete Stage 1 channel works between the A4/St Cloud Way and the GWR railway line. The end result is a navigable waterway wide enough to accommodate leisure boats and will ultimately include a weir, fish pass and boat roller. The waterway ‘ring’ that runs through and around Maidenhead is set to make an attractive feature which will encourage new life to the town centre. This scheme was driven by Maidenhead Waterways and implemented by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead’s Area Action Plan.
