As designer and Project Manager for this high-profile residential development, we had the responsibility for designing the infrastructure to support the construction of up to 5100 homes within 1200 acres of land along with over 37 kilometres of primary and secondary roads.
We worked with various major house builders to support their own housing ‘parcels’ and administered the various construction contracts with the delivery team.
The site was formerly a quarry that consisted of unconsolidated fill to a depth of up to 26 metres. We produced designs that removed the need for extensive land engineering or expensive piling and turned the area into a desirable and profitable parcel of land for the developer.
Environmental assessments were done which took a number of protected species into account.
Our designs and methodology were approved and validated by the National House Building Council (NHBC) and have provided over £20M savings to the delivery team.
