Templeman Design was provided an opportunity by East Coast Storage to assess the viability of the redevelopment of existing land to provide a light industrial and business hub for West Lynn.
The challenge was to provide a financially viable solution which was energy efficient and considered the effects of flood management.
The design process included the assessment of the site constraints which determined appropriate form of access and cost effective solution for flood management. The business park evolved into providing a number of storage units which would be constructed using sustainable technologies and materials, while providing onsite energy via the use of solar panels and a wind turbine. Flood water was managed via Sustainable Urban Drainage Strategies (SUDS) in the form of green roofs and permeable paving systems. Flood water would be managed via lagoons, swales and in land drainage systems.
