The Works - Ebbw Vale

Overview

The Corus steelworks in Ebbw Vale, South Wales closed in 2002. Covering 75 hectares to the south of the town it left a 3km long, predominantly concrete covered, brownfield site in the Ebbw Vale valley.

Our initial commission was to provide a masterplan framework and a comprehensive design code for outline planning submission for a major extension of the town into the valley. The site has undergone a significant reclamation contract and now 700 residential and business units, learning campus, theatre, hospital, rail link, funicular railway, extensive public realm and wetland escarpment are being developed.
