This is Lakeside Activity Centre, a new addition to Nene Park, Peterborough. Working together with Glenn Howells Architects, our Birmingham office was brought on to provide the structural and civil engineering designs.

The bespoke new build, which is a key element of Nene Park Trust’s 2050 vision and 10-year masterplan to become the region’s favourite park, will be fabricated using sustainable timber to reduce the carbon emission and impact on the ecology of the site and includes a 20 metre Olympic-standard climbing wall, children’s indoor play area and a lakeside café.

The plans for Lakeside Activity Centre will also dramatically improve the biodiversity and natural habitats in this area of the park by substantially increasing the number of trees and canopy cover, as well as creating attractive landscaping and bird and pollinator friendly planting.
