Coverack North Coast Protection Scheme entered by AECOM

The Coverack North Coast Protection scheme is an essential piece of infrastructure protecting the Cornwall shoreline from the risk of substantial future erosion and climate change. AECOM led the successful planning application which helps protect the main access road for the community of Coverack and ensures Common Land, property, assets and infrastructure are all safeguarded. The project team actively engaged with local stakeholders and statutory consultees which ensured development was sensitively designed, in keeping with the landscape character, AONB and the geological SSSI which were within the site. Construction was completed in February 2024.

InterCity Place entered by Plymouth City Council, University of Plymouth and Stride Treglown

Constructed in the 1960s, Inter City Place sat idle for over a decade. Set in a prominent location adjacent to Plymouth Railway Station, it represented a prime revitalisation and regeneration opportunity as an allocated site and part of the Station Masterplan. The project was envisaged by the University of Plymouth to provide a state-of-the-art facility that will educate future generations of NHS and care professionals. Delivery was challenging for various reasons, including the global pandemic and working with an old building, but the result has greatly improved the physical environment, and will help to address national shortages of healthcare workers.

Melville Phase 1 entered by Plymouth City Council, Urban Splash and Gillespie Yunnie Architects

Melville is the striking centrepiece of the largest collection of Grade 1 listed military buildings in Europe, known as Royal William Yard. Melville is Grade I Listed and on the Heritage at Risk register. A mixed-use scheme including boutique cinema, restaurants, offices, co-working space and gym, has brought life back into the building and secured its future. It has supported the ongoing delivery of a mixed-use sustainable community in Royal William Yard, as well as enhancing its economic role as a visitor and cultural destination. This development has overcome challenges in relation to viability, the pandemic, flood risk and heritage.
