The developer and regeneration specialist U+I was shortlisted to transform the Mayfield district of Manchester, close to Piccadilly Station. SuROI was used in collaboration with the bid team to influence the concept design proposals and create the maximum amount of social and environmental value for residents, employees and visitors. Innovative additions to the scheme included enhanced uses for the elevated garden walkways and a new urban park, community enterprises for the retail and meanwhile spaces, crime prevention and health enhancements to the public realm and building design, and youth active spaces and meeting places.
The submitted proposals contained a commitment to community engagement and co-design, and a pledge to carry out a 10-year post-occupation surveys and reviews to monitor how social and environmental value is produced and maintained within and around the district.
