We are very proud of the Littlehaven Promenade and Sea Wall scheme in South Tyneside. Working with South Tyneside Council and Royal Haskoning our team, which included artist Stephen Broadbent and E3 Ecology continues to get their hard work recognised by another raft of nominations and awards. Most recently this includes winning overall project of the year and infrastructure project of the year at the Constructing Excellence in the North East Awards 2015 which meant the scheme went forward into the national awards. It was awarded winner at the Northern Design Awards for Commercial Landscaping Design 2015. It was also shortlisted for the British Construction Industry Awards 2015 for Civil Engineering Project of the Year.

This week some of our team are excited to be attending the Landscape Institute Awards where Littlehaven Promenade has been shortlisted for an award in the ‘Design for Medium Scale Development’ category – an award that will strike a particular cord with us. We feel the scheme demonstrates perfectly the value of landscape architecture, in this case in ensuring the scheme surpassed its functional role as a coastal defence and provides a distinctive destination with a recognisable identity. The project has implemented an aspirational landscape design anchored in its local context and culture, and sets a high quality standard for the area.
