Green and blue infrastructure

Specialist teams at Thomson are able to help improve a scheme’s viability at the planning stage.

This may be defined as the process of addressing and improving climatic and ecological issues through building with nature. Thomson Landscapes are able to bring together our diverse and experienced in-house water and ecology specialists to develop green and blue networks.

These are designed to add aesthetic and social value to areas, offering opportunities for play and learning where appropriate, whilst also performing their key roles as corridors for wildlife, enhancing biodiversity and improving water efficiency on sites.

What we can do

Thomson is able to look at each site on an individual basis from multiple points of view. This means that client and site priorities, whether they be ecological, climatic, aesthetic, social or a combination of these and others, are incorporated into a unified and cohesive, economically viable solution. Infrastructure of this nature will often be part of planning requirements – Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS), for example, are becoming a priority for addressing flood alleviation and water efficiency – and so, by offering an integrated and cohesive solution, we are able to improve a scheme’s viability at the planning stage.
