Look! St Albans - Civic Centre Opportunity Site Design Charrette.
Andrew Sheldon of Sheldon Peever Studio joined the team of external facilitators led by Angela Koch of ImaginePlaces, to assist with the design charrette for the Civic Centre opportunity site in St Albans.
Look! St Albans were requested by ‘The Partnership’, comprising St Albans City and District Council Community Services, Herts Constabulary, NHS, and Boultbee LDN (owners of The Maltings) to host a design charrette on the Civic Centre Opportunity Site. The charrette took place over 3 days in September 2016, with a reporting session later that month.
More than 160 people attended the sessions, which produced a series of detailed reports and emerging concept plans that will inform the future character of the site.
Andrew provided 3D modelling and GIS analysis to support the participants, as well as providing material for the final reports.
Look! St Albans with ImaginePlaces and the CCOS Development Partnership were shortlisted as Finalists for the RTPI’s Awards for Planning Excellence 2017.
Here is a short video from the charrette.
