We are leading the strategic development of a 92-hectare site in Wantage to provide 1,500 new homes, a 420-pupil two-form entry primary school, community building, pub, care home, shops and sports facilities, bounded by 12.5 hectares of new woodland and creative landscaping.

Infrastructure

Employing our services as Project Manager, Development Coordinator, Cost Consultant, Employer’s Agent and Principal Designer, we have developed major new infrastructure for the site including roads, mains services and a comprehensive drainage system incorporating landscaping designed to complement the rural nature of the surrounding area.

As part of the infrastructure works, we have managed the construction of two new junctions off the main A417 Reading Road and are currently in the early stages of procurement of a new major east-west link road to the north of the site which will connect the A417 Reading Road with the A338 Grove Road.

We also coordinated an extensive archaeological scheme prior to development commencing that revealed the site was subject to major ecological constraints which were then addressed as a priority throughout each construction phase.

Solution

To avoid the negative impact of harsh winter conditions, we programmed key road projects and construction activity accordingly. Numerous temporary drainage systems were installed each winter in order to stop run-off into local farmers’ fields and major highways during record rainfall periods.

By the same token, the fine tilth of the subsoil presented a major dust problem during the summer months. We coordinated specific and targeted dust suppression measures between numerous contractors in order to minimise the risk of dust clouds enveloping highways and local residential areas.

We coordinated the overall development, liaising with housebuilders as well as directly managing civil engineering and building contractors in order to form positive working relationships.
