Oliver’s broad range of experience in the design, justification and delivery of streetscape schemes includes North Street in Brighton, where he realised a five-fold return on private sector investment in the public realm and Camden High Street – London’s first “naked street”. In the London Borough of Brent he is developing a corridor strategy for the Wembley High Road in response to Housing Zone status, as well as the design of a new crossing of the A406 North Circular to better connect Neasden for those choosing to walk and cycle. His work for the London Borough of Harrow includes a Town Centre Area Based scheme bid for which he prepared a full TfL Business Case, securing some £3m+ of funding for the Borough who are also now implementing the design. Oliver’s work on projects such as those in Romford Metropolitan Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park have highlighted his ability to solve complex traffic management and public realm issues that have involved wide ranging stakeholder involvement.
