White Horse Contractors work closely with housing developers, main contractors and local authorities to create stunning green open spaces, country parks and green infrastructure to meet your planning obligations
Bringing together decades of experience in land drainage, environmental conservation, sports pitches, and hard and soft landscaping we build green infrastructure and open spaces that promote mental and physical health in the community while achieving demanding timescales and budgets for clients.
With an established environmental review process we ensure existing habitats are enhanced not endangered. We enjoy a strong track record of delivering projects that result in a biodiversity net gain.
Our team regularly work with wildlife charities and environmental agencies on environmental and water engineering projects to create new, and improve existing, habitats for wildlife and plants.
The planting of grasses, trees, and hedgerows are integral to the construction of green infrastructure. With an in-house agronomist and a tradition in the construction of parks, parkland, and cemeteries we can advise on planting schemes or work to plans drawn up by your landscape architects.
See our environmental case studies for more information.
Calling upon our knowledge and experience in water engineering and land drainage we can advise and mitigate the risk of flooding.
For instance, when constructing Longford Park Country Park. Our team ensured that small ponds and channels leading to the Oxford Canal flowed efficiently to thwart potential flooding to housing and provide ongoing, cost-effective, environmental resilience.
Houses on the Longford development have sold out completely, and a continuation of the country park will see White Horse complete the final phase of this green open space project, in which 100% of the houses have been sold before completion.
Proven health benefits in areas with green infrastructure can include reductions in stress, obesity and heart disease-related conditions.
Residents living in healthier areas consequently reduce reliance on the NHS, bringing significant benefits to local authorities and potential home buyers.
With an expert design team, highly skilled operatives and project management team, White Horse Contractors can construct your Green Open Space, Country Park or Green Infrastructure to your specification.
