Waters’ Edge Visitor Centre and Country Park
The site comprised 34 hectares of the former contaminated Britag Chemical factory site at Barton upon Humber, North Lincolnshire, adjacent to the River Humber. Maslens undertook the role of co-ordinating the initial consultation activity, the planning submission and the EIA, involving input from specialist consultants in areas including; hydrology, ecology, archaeology, highways, ground investigation and risk assessment.
Design development included masterplanning the proposed restoration to public amenity and recreational afteruse, access improvements and also assisting the client with the estate management strategy.
The work included leading and co-ordinating the design and construction of the Waters’ Edge Visitor and Business Centre. This £3.5 million centre is the focal point of the Country Park and provides display areas, business space, a café and teaching rooms.
