We were appointed by Melton Borough Council on a design and build basis, to constrict a new car parking facility.

This site was of particular local archaeological interest. All members of the site team were briefed each morning regarding the possible location of ancient artefacts and as such, fingertip searches were undertaken resulting in the finding of artefacts dating back several centuries.

Through Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), we amended the design to utilise SUDS, incorporating porous tarmacadam.

These innovative SUDS techniques ensure surface water infiltrates through, preventing surface run off in an extreme rain event.

The SUDS solution eliminated the need for additional excavation therefore reduced amounts of quarried virgin aggregate were required for construction.

This allowed us to dramatically reduce the amount of lorry movements required in the historic market town, therefore significantly lowering the carbon footprint of the entire scheme.

These factors allowed the carpark to be built in a more efficient manner, saving weeks on the programme, reducing both overall cost to the client and disruption to all stakeholders.
