Hampton Square is an open public space that Gavin Jones redeveloped this year. The works included paving, soiling, tree and shrub planting and turfing and the installation of a water feature with an underground plant room as well as a small play area.
The site is situated in between a supermarket, a public house and a youth club, which all remained open for the duration of the works making access challenging. However working methodically the site was split into phases allowing the public access to certain parts of the site and access to the supermarket, pub and youth club.
Time scale: April 2013-September 2013
Value of Works: Approx. £600,000.00
