A new 1,500 unit major housing development, incorporating a new primary school, neighbourhood centre and central park over a 227-acre site.

Scope of Works:

As principal contractor, we have been engaged to form two new 278 works entrances into the site, together with the bulk cut and fill to ready the land parcels for construction. Our scope also includes the construction of the initial drainage and road infrastructure to service the first four land parcels.

The forming and planting of a 140,000m² public open space area which will provide the landscape centrepiece to the whole scheme.

Further technical challenges include the diversion and removal of existing HV overhead power lines, together with a new foul pump station and rising main, 7 m deep drainage and the logistics of managing works over such a large site.

Here is a short film which shows the scale of the project and the commencement of the earthworks.
