European top 1,000 company launches public open space service for housebuilders

A landscaping and estate management specialist, recently named by the London Stock Exchange as one of the 1000 Companies to inspire Europe, is launching a new service to help housebuilders with public open space and parks projects.

The TCL Group, one of whose member companies holds a royal warrant, already has an impressive track record in working with developers, local authorities and environmental organisations to deliver complex multi-faceted public schemes.

The one stop shop service, which launches on February 1, is aimed at enabling housebuilders to perform often complex and highly emotive installations successfully and cost effectively and will cover every stage and all aspects of the project.

The service will be led by TCL Group technical director Jonathan Highley who explained: “Over the last few years TCL has supported many housebuilder groups with planning support, local authority negotiation, landscape design and installation of all the component parts of public open areas, specifically in relation to sports pitches, cycle paths, bridleways, country parks and play provision.

“With careful planning, product selection, smart timing of installations and local authority negotiation we have been able save housebuilders many hundreds of thousands of pounds and deliver some incredibly successful ‘placemaking’ projects which we think will appeal to national housebuilding groups.

“This new part of group will look to build upon the vast experience we have within the business and will be dedicated to supporting housebuilders in this specific requirement.”

The TCL Group’s extensive experience includes multi-million pound public open space projects nationwide as well as SANGS (Suitable Accessible Natural Green Space) sites.

“Our offering is aimed at ensuring public open space areas are designed and presented in a way that will provide a reason to select, not reject, a property on a particular development,” added Jonathan.

The TCL Group, which employs 800 colleagues across the UK and turns over around £60 million a year, works regularly with developers such as Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon, David Wilson Homes and Redrow Homes.

The new service will operate nationwide using the TCL Group’s regional operational network.
