The Chadwick Centre, Berkhamstead School wins Best Landscape Award 2009 at the Brick Awards

Short and Associate's botanist/landscape architect, Slaine Campbell MLI, designed the scheme, which judges described as "exploring all aspects of landscape" and as being crucial to the function of the new building.

The project includes new native and ornamental planting; lawns; re-profiling and planting riverbanks; a new bridge; an outdoor classroom, external gathering spaces, footpaths and roadways paved in natural clay products by H.G.Matthews and Hanson, which were chosen to compliment the new and existing brick buildings. The main contractor was Mansells.
