Securing planning permission for a modern building in a UNESCO World Heritage Site
- The Giant’s Causeway had been without a decent visitors’ centre since the old one had burnt down in 2000.
- Long and protracted discussions led to the selection of a modern design by Heneghan Peng Architects and the National Trust taking over the project in 2008.
- We sought to obtain planning permission and provided high level consultation with the planning service and other statutory consultees.
- Took just seven months to secure planning permission.
- The project, under construction from 2010 to 2012, achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating and relies heavily on renewable energy.
- In addition to our successful planning application procedure, we followed up with project management of other related applications for ancillary facilities, off-site parking and changes to listed buildings.
