Community Engagement

At Building Plymouth, we support everything Plymouth. This is why we are are keen for the upcoming Mayflower400 celebrations to drive bold and strategic action, and have a legacy. We’re delighted to support the following projects and can’t wait to see how they develop.

Adopt a Street – The Road to Mayflower (Embankment Road)

The vision is to transform the appearance of Embankment Road focusing on arrival at Marsh Mills roundabout, up to and including the Cattedown roundabout in order to deliver a world-class visitor impression on arrival by road into Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City.

The Building Plymouth working group comprising of leading organisations AECOM, HLM, Hoare Lea, Stride Treglown, YGS Landscapes, and Ward Williams Associates will, using their experience, work up design and technical work groups supported by other industry leads. The strength and breadth of knowledge within the built environment professionals across the city is vast and their particular strength lies in their track record already being engaged in the regeneration of Plymouth. A Launch Event is being hosted at Plumer House on 25 January 2018.

Adopt a Space – Street Factory’s Hip-Hop Factory

Building Plymouth, our Council led partnership with the local construction industry, has launched the first city wide transformational project with hip-hop community interest company Street Factory.

Street Factory recently took over former industrial premises on Sawery Street in Millbay and last week construction professionals, led by HLM Architects, unveiled the inspiring designs for the proposed £2 million new facility which will be home to the world’s largest hip-hop theatre and hip-hop education programme, whilst also leaving a legacy for Mayflower400.
