We want to make Greater Manchester one of the world's leading green city regions - a place full of inspirational places to play, learn, eat and meet. A city that people can enjoy, businesses want to invest in and that continues to provide a home for nature.
Sustainable landscape design
Our award-winning Chartered Landscape Architecture Practice offers a full design service - from translating aspirations into a viable design to implementation and establishment of the final scheme.
What sets Groundwork apart is our commitment to maximising social value. At the heart of all our work is the desire to maximise public benefit from public space in Greater Manchester in order to promote health and wellbeing, support economic development and tackle environmental sustainability.
Our end-to-end service also means we can help you to identify just the right landscape contractor from our select list which includes our in-house Blue Sky North team. Blue Sky aims to reduce re-offending rates through the employment of ex-offenders, meaning additional social value, far above and beyond the excellent commercial value offered as standard.
Our commitment to social value means we can help public sector commissioners to adhere to the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012.
We are passionate about using green infrastructure to ensure developments are adapted to and mitigate against climate change. Solutions range from maximising the use of sustainably sourced and recycled materials through to innovative engineering solutions such as SuDS, green roofs and erosion control.
Groundwork is committed to ensuring that our work is delivered according to recognised environmental and quality standards.
