Humans have a fundamental need to interact with one another and their environment. This understanding sits at the core of Alan Baxter’s intuitive approach to urbanism.
Alan Baxter offer a holistic approach to all projects relating to the built environment, bringing together urban designers, masterplanners, civil engineers, conservation specialists and movement analysts in an integrated team. Their constant awareness of the bigger picture is underpinned by the robustness of their engineering expertise and experience of delivering innovative buildings, public realm and structures on site. This approach brings real value to our clients, be they from the public or private sector.
They are often called on to help unlock highly challenging sites including major brownfield regeneration projects, transport and civic hubs and sensitive historic environments, which require the ability to both resolve complex technical details and to deliver visionary and innovative design solutions.
The lasting legacy of Alan Baxter’s work is evident at all levels from rural estates and villages to suburbs and the densest city centres.
Projects range from district wide master plans such as at Kidlington, Oxfordshire to city centre regeneration including the SPD for Leicester Waterside, the master plan for the Snow Hill District of Birmingham’s city centre and the development framework for Bristol Temple Meads Stations for Network Rail. Alan Baxter work with landowners and developers to prepare design codes and planning applications for sites at a wide range of scales, for example the 250 home Garden Village in Newport, South Wales to Thetford’s 5000 home Sustainable Urban Extension.
