Technical challenges overcome

Client:                         Redrow Homes (Eastern)
Contract value:                 £7,000,000

Working for Redrow Homes (Eastern) on a site in Witham, Essex, M Anderson Construction Ltd secured the first phase of a 750-unit development, including the delivery of a technically challenging Section 278 package.

Prior to the commencement of any on-site works the site team had to relocate and increase the size of the Hatfield Road roundabout, with minimal disruption to traffic flow, along with the installation of a 300m run of surface water drainage in the existing highway.

 

Working to a tight programme

The team successfully achieved the works on time and were able to move onto the on-site roads, sewers and groundworks for the first 91 units.

The first phase groundworks were made up of strip foundations at varying depths, pre-cast block and beam floors with screeds and all associated private drainage and externals.
