cbec was contracted by Aberdeen City Council in January 2012 to restore the East Tullos Burn in St Fittick’s Park, Torry, from a hard-engineered straightened channel into a more natural stream and associated functional floodplain. An important design element was the creation of wetlands and associated off-channel features to provide the same function as a Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS), but in a more aesthetic and natural way. These features of the design will benefit the site by improving wetland habitat, nutrient/pollutant buffering, and enhancing hydro-morphology.

Wide consultation with the local community and stakeholders was undertaken with Walking-the-Talk to gather opinion as to what the project should deliver and preferred restoration options. The outputs of this consultation work were fed into the design of two final options. One of these design options was selected in 2013, and construction of the works began this March, with cbec leading the management of this and Salix River and Wetland Services delivering the construction.

The construction phase is complete, with the planting of native species finished last April 2014. Check out photos of the project below, including post-completion.
