Queens Square Crawley commended at CIHT Awards
Waterman are delighted to see Queens Square Crawley commended at the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation Awards for ‘Creating Better Places’.
The Awards celebrate the highways and transportation industry, rewarding the outstanding accomplishments of those within the sector and promoting their expertise as best practise to a wider audience.
The ambitious renovation of Queens Square has uplifted Crawley Town Centre into a decorative and appealing feature for its local community. Clever landscaping surrounds the levelled water fountain at the heart of the layout, creating a framed focal point which emphasises a feeling of tranquillity for the pedestrians passing through. Feature lighting and discreetly concealed power units within the paving allows for public events to be hosted throughout the evenings, as well as increasing security across the site.
Waterman were appointed to carry out infrastructure & environmental design consultancy services throughout the scheme, including highways, drainage, pavement construction, electrical and incoming supplies design.
Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development at Crawley Borough Council, said; “Queens Square looks fantastic; it’s a brilliant, award-winning, much-improved public area which has become a popular meeting point and events space in the town centre. Since its completion we have been delighted by the impact of this investment as new businesses, investors and visitors have been attracted to our town.”
Waterman’s Framework Director, Amrit Ghose, also Fellow of CIHT, said; “The commendation is a fantastic recognition for all involved in this prestigious town centre regeneration which is central to the reinvigoration of Crawley Town Centre.”
