This scheme involved the construction of a new car park, welfare building and waste compound along with alterations to the existing car parks and footways and the diversion of a water main.
This involved undertaking all of the civil engineering aspects in addition to co-ordinating the utility services into the welfare building along with project management of several sub-contract work packages including the building works, M & E services along with street lighting and staff access barriers, fencing, soft landscaping, surfacing and road markings.
This was a particularly challenging environment as the works were undertaken in a “live” hospital environment that required working closely with the Hospital Estates Department to ensure we minimised nuisance and ensured the safety of the visiting public and staff. This was achieved by using a designated vehicle access route and clearly defined pedestrian routes and protection measures to stop encroachment into the work area.
This scheme involved the construction of new 1000 space Park and Ride facility along with new bus lane and traffic signalled junction.
Delivered in partnership with Tarmac National Contracting our role was to undertake all of the civil engineering works. This included kerbing, drainage, hard and soft landscaping, ducting for the services into a busstation facilities building and the communication systems including CCTV, ANPR and access/egress barriers.
The scheme involved the reconstruction and resurfacing of the main car park for the West Midlands Police at the Central Traffic Complex at Aston.
To maintain programme and continuity of work details of all daily deliveries were provided to on-site security personnel to enable them to monitor all site movements and minimise the potential of encroachment by unexpected visitors.
One of the challenges associated with the works was working in a “live” environment. This involved extensive liaison with the Complex Fleet Manager to enable us to phase the works and minimise disruption to the operation of the facility. The works were undertaken in four distinct phases enabling access to be maintained with minimum hindrance to the works programme.
The scheme was delivered in partnership with Tarmac National Contracting and our package of works involved the civil engineering package as part of the construction of a 1000 space car park that was delivered as part of the Midlands Highway Alliance Medium Schemes Framework Contract.
Our work involved the civil engineering aspects of the scheme and included the installation of an extensive sustainable drainage system (SUDS), hard landscaping in the car parking areas, installation of rainwater storage tanks and the creation of a balancing pond.
In addition to preventing potential flooding, the balancing pond has created the additional benefit of providing potential opportunities for wildlife habitats.
