Hanwood Park is a Sustainable Urban Extension to the East of Kettering, which will see the delivery of 5,500 homes over the next 20 years. The client commissioned Lockhart Garratt to manage the construction tender and contract for the first of several public parks to come forward with the project. This area – known as the Linear Park for its elongated shape – runs alongside
the main arterial highway into the development, and comprises an informal design based upon the traditional parkland of nearby Boughton House.
Our brief was to manage the construction stage from tender preparation and issue, to the completion of the defect liability period. We are also advising the client on future management arrangements, via the establishment of a Community Trust.
