Information about this scheme

Situated in the floodplain of the River Kennet, the scheme had to provide development platforms above the 1:200 year flood event and 40 acres of compensatory flood storage and conveyance on the site. The fusion of landscape design and building architecture provides a high quality working environment for the 5000 office employees and their visitors. The landscape has evolved into a diverse range of habitats for a variety of animals and birds. The local community has benefitted from the proximity of the Park, with Lime Square quickly realising its potential as the amenity hub and is home to a brasserie, a health and fitness club, a play and party world for children and a day nursery. The Park hosts a number of sporting activities and events and seasonal markets are held throughout the year.
