Value : £100 Million
FWP worked with landscape architects Randall Thorp to develop the site masterplan for the 2,000 acre Salford Forest Park site near to Worsley, Manchester. The scheme included the creation of a forest visitor attraction and a new international standard turf and all weather racecourse on greenbelt land. Existing farm buildings were retained wherever possible and new structures were designed to blend in and complement the rural location.
The scheme includes a four star 120 bedroom hotel & conferencing, grandstand & ancillary facilities, woodland visitor centre, indoor equestrian arena & stabling and eco village residential lodges. All the buildings were designed to be sustainable in terms of energy and materials usage.
