Prime also understand regeneration, with members of the team having worked on numerous town/city centre regeneration projects, allowing them to appreciate the varying needs of developers, local authorities and end user requirements from a transport and accessibility perspective. Input to sub-regional studies has also allowed members of the team to appreciate the importance of linkage and connectivity by various transport modes and the role this plays in spatial planning.

Prime’s ethos is to deliver projects on time and within budget, achieving resolutions to transport issues that meet both the aspirations of local authorities whilst maintaining the financial viability of projects for our clients. In doing so, Prime strive to maintain excellent working relationships with clients and fellow professionals.
