Parklea sport hub design shortlisted for prize

Land Use Consultants (LUC) has been shortlisted for a Nature of Scotland Award for its Parklea Community Sport Hub landscape design.

The development, near Port Glasgow on the Clyde Estuary, was commissioned by Inverclyde Council. The firm was tasked with refurbishing Parklea, providing a modern sports facility for the community and increasing biodiversity at the site, which is a special protection area, Ramsar site and site of special scientific interest.

Working alongside S&P Architects, LUC created two all-weather synthetic pitches, a sports pavilion, a road, car parking and utility infrastructure. The firm also refurbished grass pitches.
