BWB is proud to have played a key role in a major £38million regeneration scheme that has transformed part of Stafford town centre. The sustainable mixed-use development at Tipping Street was designed to bring massive investment into the area and create hundreds of jobs in brand new offices, shops and cafes. The centrepiece of the scheme was the construction of Staffordshire County Council's new headquarters, a modern 158,000 square foot building to accommodate 1,750 local authority workers.

BWB was commissioned by Stoford Developments to design a highway scheme around the perimeter of the development under a S111 agreement with the council. Our specialist Transport and Infrastructure team created a solution that was pedestrian-friendly yet still allowed vehicle access where necessary.

The Tipping Street regeneration scheme was completed and opened to the public in 2011.

Key Challenges

Key challenges that BWB addressed with this highway design included:

- Creating a pedestrian-friendly environment that was in keeping with the surrounding town centre area but which still maintained access for delivery vehicles and buses

- Giving input into the design of a physical deterrent to vehicles entering the plaza whilst maintaining suitable access for all pedestrians and cyclists
