Fitzgerald (Civil Engineer Contractors)

Housing Infrastructure

We have extensive experience of working on infrastructure projects and have worked with our partners to deliver a number of high-profile schemes on time and within budget.

Silverwoods Park

£3.1 million

Silverwoods Park is a new development in Kidderminster on the site of the former British Sugar Factory. Our works involved installation of the foul and storm system under a S104 agreement with Severn Trent, construction of new access route off the Stourport Road under a S278 agreement and on-site adoptable highway under a S38 agreement.

Rushden Household Waste Recycling Centre

£650,000

The contract involved undertaking upgrade works at the household waste recycling centre site to reduce peak hours queuing and improve the overall experience to users and staff.

The works involved widening the perimeter road over the majority of its length to two lanes, reducing queues and improving flow of traffic. The creation of formalised pull in areas, improved pavement finishes in both tarmac and new concrete slabs. The reprofiling of grass margins and improvement to the soft landscaping. Further works involved new ‘saw tooth’ in-situ concrete retaining wall with parapet and handrail.

A34 High Street, Bloxwich

A complex junction improvement scheme delivered in partnership with Walsall Council. The scheme involved working in a busy urban thoroughfare to construct and improve new bus priority measures for a new “Red Route”, consisting of the construction of bus borders, installation of traffic signalled junctions and pedestrian crossings, carriageway resurfacing, hard landscaping works, the creation of car parking bays, the installation of road signs and the coordination of diversion works for statutory undertaker’s equipment.

Alexandra Hospital, Redditch

£1.1 million

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 coordinating the utility services into the welfare building along with project management of several subcontract 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 close lisaison with the hospital estates department to ensure we mitigated disruption 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 areas.

Birstall Park and Ride

£1 million

This scheme involved the construction of new 1,000 space park and ride facility along with a 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 bus station building and the communication systems including CCTV, ANPR and access/egress barriers.

Enderby Park and Ride

£1.4 million

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 1,000 space car park that was delivered as part of the Midlands Highway Alliance Medium Schemes Framework Contract.

Our works 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 wildlife habitats.
