Kirkstall Forge Remediation & Infrastructure
Delivering remediation and infrastructure to site with history dating back to 1200 A.D.
This challenging and interesting infrastructure project was our first contract for Leeds City Council. The scheme formed an integral part of the wider redevelopment plans for the historical Kirkstall Forge site which dates back to the 12th century. We were tasked with providing the development infrastructure including remediation, a new signalised access junction, spine road infrastructure, drainage, reinforced earth structures and a new 27m single span bridge over the River Aire.

During the project we encountered a major storm, a 1 in a 100-year weather pattern over the Christmas break period which caused partial flooding of the site. We mobilised a team over the Christmas break 2015 to make the site safe, clean up any debris and ensure the site was ready to be worked on as soon as we returned to work in early January.
