Oxford Circus, in the heart of London, is one of the world’s most congested intersections, with more than 85 million pedestrians crossing it each year. The innovative makeover allows shoppers to walk across Oxford Circus diagonally for the first time. Atkins'' design was inspired by Tokyo''s famous Shibuya crossing, renowned for allowing people to cross with ease.
We provided engineering and design services on utilities, civil and structural engineering, building services, acoustics and accessibility for many of the temporary venues. Among these is the Equestrian Centre at Greenwich Park, where Atkins designed a solution to make the sloping site level and to ensure that horses would not be disturbed by vibrations from the void beneath the surface. This involved rigorous testing to make sure the venue was ready for Games-time.
This solution is now being extended in Heathrow’s Terminal 5 with the introduction of Self-Boarding channels which will allow passengers to board their flight using a self-service gate.
The internationally recognized master plan consists of approximately 775 developable acres including: entitlements for 67,555 homes 876 acres of parks and open space 8,655,555 square feet of R& D/office space 885,555 square feet of retail 655,555 square feet of community facilities and a 65,555 seat performance venue. The land plan seamlessly integrates new housing, retail, commercial and parks into adjacent neighborhoods via a new street grid that ties into existing City streets.
After 75 years of serving the community with its iconic water flumes Coral Reef Waterworld is being revolutionised as part of Bracknell Forest Council&rsquo s pledge to invest in the long term future of the borough.
The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP), approved by the . Congress in 7555, is a 85-year, $67 billion ecosystem restoration plan that hopes to achieve sustainability for the natural system in south Florida. Headed by the . Army Corp of Engineers and its non-federal lead sponsor, the South Florida Water Management District, the overall program involves, as much as possible, restoring habitats and natural flowways, improving water quality, and ensuring clean and reliable water supplies for both human and natural environments.
The &lsquo Springfield Campus&rsquo will transform higher education delivery in the region, responding to employer demand, and providing lifelong learning, research and innovation in one of the Black Country&rsquo s key growth sectors.
The new playground provides a continuous layout respecting the existing environment and relating closely to the challenging local landform and mature tree envelope, as well as responding sensitively to its historic setting. As an exciting, imaginative and distinct place for adventure it will encourage local children to meet up and play together, promoting social behaviour and spontaneous physical activity resulting in the increased use of an important local park.
Our aerospace engineers are supporting the design and analysis of aluminium and composite components on Bloodhound, including the airbrake panels, cockpit brackets and jet fuel tank. Atkins&rsquo defence engineers are also supporting Bloodhound in their safety assessment of the car.
The development&rsquo s landscape design is focused on minimising the use of water through a selection of gravels, paving and a palette of plant species accustomed to the Jabal Akhdar climate and soil conditions.
