The Stevenage SG1 project is a regeneration programme for 14.5 acres of land. It will provide more than 1,800 high-quality new homes, 3,500 square metres of retail and commercial floor space. This will also include a new public square and a new park, as well as a Public Services Hub and a new primary school. Peter Marshall are providing steel staircases for a number of buildings on this project.
Key principles of the redevelopment project are to create a vibrant town centre with a variety of housing, as well as having attractive outdoor spaces and more places to eat. The goal is to encourage people to stay in the town and enjoy it, year round. Additional regeneration will include the creation of a public services hub, bringing together community assets such as the local library, voluntary sector, café and council offices.
With an eye on the future, the plans also include sustainability features. These include low and zero carbon technologies and ecological enhancements that promote sustainable living. Integrated streets that promote pedestrians and cyclists are part of the regeneration to reduce carbon emissions in the town centre. With close transport links to London via the train, the Stevenage SG1 project has a lot of potential to transform the town.
The diversification of the town is already underway, bringing together residential, leisure, commercial space, evening economy, active travel and arts and culture. A number of organisations are working on this project including the Mace and Reef Group which delivered the Shard in London. The projects throughout the town have been shaped by consultations with the local community, which is actively involved.
