Woodcote Way

Shropshire Homes

Project Description

The steeply sloping site was for a residential development of 43 plots. The lower areas of the site are within Flood Zone 3, the access road was developed so that it remained out of the flood levels for safe access and compensatory storage was provided as part of the development.

The site conditions are not suitable for infiltration, therefore under the hierarchy of sustainable urban drainage (SuDS) principles the surface water discharge is collected in Swales and discharges to the watercourse. Check dams were detailed in the swales to provide attenuation and to slow flows. Foul water is collected and pumped to the main sewers.

We also undertook the highway design of the ghost island junction off Woodcote Way and the traffic calming features on site.

2021 - New Year, New Office

Here at Thomas Consulting we are on the move….

Exciting times after nearly 20 years in the current office at Friar Street the team are moving to a brighter, bigger accessible office at 21 China Street, Lancaster.  

The building has been part of a development undertaken by JMP Architects at their existing site.

The new office space has access directly off of China Street giving on-site parking for the Team and visiting clients; a rarity in Lancaster city centre.

As soon as COVID-19 Security and Government restrictions permit, we are looking forward to inviting all our associates and clients to enjoy a little cheese and Wine event at our new home.

We will be raising a toast to a healthy, safe and prosperous year for all.
