This exciting new green, pedestrian-friendly public space for the city centre involved the most significant changes to a city centre road layout for 15 years. The scheme has attracted over £20m of Government funding and work to transform the look and feel of the area began in August 2020.
The redevelopment of the whole Broadmarsh area will drastically improve the city centre once completed, with a new Broadmarsh Car Park and Bus Station, Central Library, Nottingham Castle visitor experience and Nottingham College City Hub and reimagined public realm.
Amber Valley Stone was instructed to supply architectural precast seating and step units including curved areas to the Broadmarsh redevelopment.
AVS manufactured various samples & mix designs for the landscape architects, Pick Everard, to find the perfect colour and finish to meet their strict criteria.
“We have had a very good experience working with Amber Valley. The design interface was efficient, with just in time deliveries.
I would have no hesitation in recommending and working with them on future schemes”
-Vince Hacket, Thomas Bow Project Manager
The new spaces and traffic reduction allows improved pedestrian environments. The work provides a public space between the new college, shopping centre, Nottingham Central Library and Nottingham Castle, with spaces for outdoor seating, food and drink in Carrington Street and areas for children to play, creating a better atmosphere to sit and dwell during the day.
“It was a pleasure working with Thomas Bow on this combination of benches and steps for the regeneration of the Broadmarsh centre. The colour and heavy etched finish complement the surrounding block paving seamlessly. Another project by Amber Valley Stone expertly designed and engineered by Erskine Hurt Consultants Ltd.”
-Ian Woollen, AVS Project Manager
