Landscape Architecture Primarily a hard-landscape scheme, Frenchay Square is a flexible-use space that caters for events, pedestrian circulation and cycle lanes, with seating areas and a grove of semimature trees. The key concept for Frenchay Square was to unify the existing campus with the Students’ Union building and the Faculty of Business and Law building (Bristol Business School), enhancing the cycle and pedestrian access, whilst creating a new character for the external spaces. Natural stone and high-quality concrete setts instil a sense of arrival and inspire civic pride, with the character unified by a consistent design that is reinforced through repeat detailing. A unique pattern has been arranged to reflect the campus identity, with the campus bar code used as a design feature, with the ‘black & white’ banding providing the inspiration behind the striped paving pattern that has become a defining feature of the works. 58 SPECIFIERS JOURNAL - SPRING 2018

To provide maximum impact throughout the whole academic year, planting design required an emphasis on drought tolerant species and sensitive combinations which complement. With good planting design, maintenance can be reduced, leaving plants to grow to their full size. Substantial tree planting was proposed relating to the scale and size of the development, particularly in areas with sunnier aspect. Ninety semi-mature trees were hand selected at Lorenz von Ehren tree nursey in Germany. They were tagged in September, before being lifted and transported to UWE in December and January. The visit to the nursery allowed for the specific requirements and characteristics of the tree species to be assessed on the functions and uniformity that they were expected to perform in such an important location for the campus.
