Key Challenges

Located within a residential area with a local cemetery and recreational centre in the near vicinity EWC showed sensitivity throughout the construction period ensuring minimum disruption to the local community.

This brownfield site required a number of alterations and extensions to the existing utilities and services.

Added Value

During the build EWC offered work experience opportunities and apprenticeship weeks on site, working with us and our supply chain.

We also hosted site tours, talks on architecture, engineering and construction topics, along with careers presentations for local students and young people.

Our team worked closely with the client providing them with information on robust materials and equipment, life cycle maintenance as well as capital cost enabling them to make informed decisions in the context of long term operational requirements.
