Pegasus Group provided landscape design services and were commissioned by contractors Kier to design and oversee the implementation of the landscape scheme on site.

Nicholas Harman, from Pegasus Group’s Cirencester office, said: “Working closely with the contractor, architects (Architype) and engineers (Price & Myers and E3), proposals for the school have had to accord closely with the design guides set for the development, as well as work to a very stringent brief set by the local education authority.

“The scheme incorporates extensive soft sports provision as well as a SuDS design, which will provide outdoor learning opportunities as well as biodiversity benefits.

“Pegasus Group are currently retained as project landscape architects to lead the design of the scheme and oversee the implementation of the external spaces and sports pitches.”

Works on the £7 million project are due to start on site at the end of July and once completed, will be a key component of the Graven Hill development, which is set to be the UK’s largest self and custom build community.
