JSA wins bid for Lead Consultant role for Brinton Park restoration
Brinton Park is Kidderminster’s most important public park. Wyre Forest District Council have succeeded with a £2.4 million grant application to the HLF. JSA have ben appointed to lead the design team to deliver the project.
Brinton Park was created and gifted to the people of Kidderminster in the 1880’s by Kidderminster carpet magnate John Brinton. The park has continued to offer a rich visitor experience ever since and is a key part of the fabric of Kidderminster’s townscape. The park currently supports a range of activities being delivered by external partners such as the Emily Jordan Foundation and the Scouts.
The restoration scheme will include the recreation of the original lake, the provision of a new park café, an extension to the Sons of Rest building and works to upgrade the park’s other hard and soft landscape infrastructure.
JSA has assembled a team of collaborators including Donald Insall Associates (conservation architecture), Hydreau (hydrology), Huntley Cartwright (QS) and Webb Yates (structural and civil engineering). The Development Phase of the project will be completed by February 2020 with a Delivery Phase running from 2020 to 2022.
Jon Sheaff will lead the project for JSA. Jon commented ‘Brinton Park will allow us to build on our existing portfolio of work in the West Midlands and we’ll make use of our considerable track record of delivering HLF-funded park restoration projects to bring this exciting and challenging scheme to fruition’.
