We believe in creating inclusive people-centric destinations where communities and businesses can collaborate and embrace new ways of working and living, whilst positively impacting the physical and social environments we deliver.

We strive to deliver highly successful, climate-resilient solutions for our projects. Our expertise covers all types of projects encompassing retail, residential and commercial functions, from challenging refurbishment schemes through to major new – build urban regeneration developments. Mixed-use projects require a holistic, highly collaborative approach, underpinned by expert input and we deliver connected environments which respond to the differing sector demands.

Our team has a proven track record of planning and designing for a wide range of uses and functions, often with complex infrastructure requirements, and we have developed a strong understanding of specific and specialised needs.

The multidiscipline approach taken by our team covering all elements of building services, structural, civil and environmental design ensures that we efficiently meet all project engineering demands. We recognise the importance of health and wellbeing and strive to create a sense of community that nurtures this through access to safe, inspiring and diverse spaces where people can meet and socialise.

Our agile design solutions embed climate resilience throughout, ensuring our developments continually adapt to the changing world. Our multidiscipline teams take a holistic approach to designing sustainable, low carbon solutions for the built environment, considering the project’s whole life carbon cycle, circular economy and operational carbon emissions. Our specialist sustainability team works alongside our engineers to guide the design process and to set the roadmap for achieving the project sustainability goals and targets.

Featured Project

Regenerating Basildon through the Eastgate Quarter Scheme creating a new destination for residents and visitors.

Recently granted outline planning consent, the regeneration of Basildon’s town centre through the Eastgate Quarter scheme will create a new destination for residents and visitors.

Based around Leslie Jones Architecture’s key vision, the ambitious plans focus on the creation of four new distinctive character areas within Basildon town centre, which together will form the new Eastgate Quarter.

The Eastgate Centre was built during the 1980s and sits at the heart of the town. Originally the largest covered shopping centre in Europe, Eastgate dominates the eastern half of the town centre, limiting connectivity to the rest of the town. Through Eastgate Quarter developers, Sovereign Centros, aim to reinvigorate the area, transforming the Eastgate Centre site to create an interconnected, attractive and safe gateway to the town.

By repurposing elements of the existing shopping centre and relocating the Asda store, Eastgate Quarter will deliver a stunning mixed-use district which provides up to 2,800 new homes – including build to rent, open market sale, student accommodation, housing for later living and co-living units – along with a comprehensive blend of retail, leisure, commercial and dining outlets which are set to become a destination for residents and visitors.

Waterman is providing multidiscipline engineering services in support of this exciting scheme and our experts are working closely with Leslie Jones Architecture to help create a truly sustainable development. With cutting carbon high on the agenda, our building services team is developing the energy strategy for the site which will be centred around air source heat pump technology supplemented by PV cells.

Integrated within the extensive landscape design, which incorporates three hectares of new landscaped space punctuated by around 700 new trees, our infrastructure team provided planning advice on the development-wide drainage strategy. This included designing a detailed SuDS scheme which will ensure surface water discharge rates are reduced across the site. Sustainable infrastructure and transport options will provide a further environmental boost and play a vital role connecting the town centre with the rest of Basildon.

Meanwhile, our structures team has developed a flexible structural solution for Eastgate Quarter which optimises arrangements for each of the various use types, and they are also appraising the viability of foundation re-use to further reduce the development’s embodied carbon.
