Pleiade Associates are architects based in Bristol, United Kingdom. We are the project masterplanners for the LOX Study — a proposal for a four-runway airport near Abingdon in Oxfordshire, which was submitted to the Airports Commission in July 2013.
❖ The report to the Commission is available here: LOX report 2013.
The Airports Commission initially published (December 2013) highly compressed modified files of our submission: the resultant extremely poor resolution rendered many of the published figures unclear. The figures and illustrations provided here are not merely duplicates of those made available through the Commission, but are of the original higher resolution and thus, crucially, provide greater detail. Only our documentation was subjected to this modification by the Commission, perhaps because of the almost uniquely high level of detail in our submission — the Heathrow Airport Limited proposal excepted.
We intend to provide additional relevant information. This will include a proposed scheme for direct periodic compensation for the impacts of aircraft noise.*
