This former industrial estate is being converted to a mixed-use development comprising of 344 private residential and affordable homes, landscaped community spaces, shops, offices, a community centre and public square.
The industrial nature of occupation since the 1930s has resulted in heavy hydrocarbon ground contamination ultimately requiring the excavation of contaminated ground.
Our consultants were appointed to act on the client’s behalf, providing project management, employer’s agent and CDM co-ordination services.
We administered the tendering process to procure the demolition contractor and project managed the demolition, archaeological investigation, environmental/ waste consultancy and ground remediation phases of the development.
We co-ordinated the independencies of the various consultants and contractors and achieved a positive stakeholder relationship with the local community and Waltham Forest Borough Council throughout.
It was clear from the outset that the required service disconnections and discharge of planning conditions would be a risk to the programme holding a combined value to the client in contractual fund release of £300,000 and £1.1m bond.
We ensured the release of the contractual funds and reduced the impact of potential delays to the programme to deliver a fully remediated site on time and on budget.

"During the demolition and ground remediation of the site, a number of World War II shelters and storage tanks were uncovered and 18,000 tonnes of contaminated ground successfully excavated."
