Remediation within a major Nottingham redevelopment.
The project formed part of the major redevelopment of a 14-hectare brownfield site on a former brickworks factory in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.
I & H Brown’s scope of work was particularly broad for this project. The full site remediation included site clearance, breakout and crushing of hardstanding areas, validation of construction platforms – including the removal of contamination and asbestos and cut-and-fill to design levels.
We undertook Section 278 highway works to form a new roundabout over the existing junction to provide access to the new development. This included service diversions, drainage, full road construction, landscaping, and street lighting.
Section 38 spine road was installed to the new development. This included a roundabout, access junctions, attenuation basins, new incoming services and sub-station building. This was finalised with Section 104 foul and surface water sewers.
Phase 2/3 was a 6-month contract that was awarded to I & H Brown through negotiation and ran concurrently with Phase 1. This element of the project involved the full site remediation of the remaining ten hectares of brownfield land and the preparation of further development platforms. The works involved were similar to those in Section 1 (Phase 1), with the only addition being the demolition of relevant buildings and the installation of swales.
