The MUSCo will design, build, finance and operate two new energy centres, community heating, chilled water and private wire power networks, a supply of untreated groundwater for non-potable use and a 'fibre to the unit' data services network.
  • Environmental masterplanning proposals for the redevelopment of canal-side land at Warwick Bar in central Birmingham covering microclimate, carbon emissions, water management, biodiversity, access and movement, public realm and land use.
  • A residential development within the Marais floodplain north of St Peter Port on the island of Guernsey, where the site context and the planning brief required a holistic approach to urban design incorporating elements of landscape, ecology and sustainable flood management.
  • The techno-economic assessment of site-wide renewable energy resources at Elephant and Castle, and locally derived sources of renewable fuel within Southwark.
