Boundary Park, Deeside
The new units comprise internal areas of mezzanine office areas and dedicated car parking designed to attract new and expanding businesses to the area.
As part of the project, we need to undertake service diversions, site clearance, grubbing up and tank removal works together with associated service yards, access road and other hard and soft landscaping works, such as a concrete service yard.
There was an extensive array of existing services in the ground which required diversion. EWC implemented careful digging around the perimeter to identify the positions of services prior to their termination.
The site’s location, on a high water table, required extensive use of de-watering when constructing the drainage foundations. A pumped drainage system was implemented for both surface and foul water drainage to combat the high drainage outfalls.
The previous use of this site, as a first and second World War base, presented a number of challenges with the ground conditions, including the risk of unexploded UXO, buried ducts containing asbestos and buried foundations.
The project was awarded a grant by the Welsh Government to ensue sustainable property development.
In order to maximise recycling of waste, EWC reused existing material to level the ground, where possible.
We also employed a wheel washing facility to prevent contamination when leaving the site. Water from the wheel wash was reused and recycled.
