Our approach to life is illustrated by our commitment to three core principles:
AGDR recognises the importance of mixed-use development in promoting the successful and sustainable regeneration of places. We have a strong track record of delivering complex mixed-use regeneration projects for both the public and private sectors illustrated by our current work delivering the Chesterfield Waterside project, a £340 million, mixed-use regeneration scheme included in Regeneration & Renewal Magazine’s Top 100 UK Regeneration Projects.
A key strength of AGDR is our ability to persuade our clients of the merits of good quality design at the outset of a project and to ensure through precise delivery advice that quality of design is not compromised during the later delivery stages.
Examples of our success in working with developers to deliver high quality design include the CABE award winning Dale Mill and Trafalgar Street housing projects by BASE for the Rochdale and Oldham HMR Pathfinder. AGDR managed the successful bid and had a key role in project managing delivery.
AGDR provides robust delivery advice tailored to the specific needs of the project. We work carefully to ensure that our projects and proposals are deliverable within the confines of the market.
Our approach to delivery is to create bespoke delivery plans and structures based on public-private partnership understanding and the need to protect the main objectives of all partners in all circumstances.
Examples of our Partnership delivery strategies include Smithfield Market, Manchester (Manchester City Council and AMEC), Chesterfield Waterside Ltd (Chesterfield Borough Council and Urbo Regeneration Ltd), East Central Rochdale (Oldham-Rochdale HMR Pathfinder and BASE) and Bradford Canal Corridor (Bradford MDC and Urbo).
