We were appointed by Groundwork Greater Nottingham to realign a section of the day brook watercourse; by excavating a new channel to improve water flow, increasing both channel and flood plain storage.

Several semi-mature trees were felled to create more space and light before works commenced, cognisant of conservation of existing wildlife. The main construction works involved the excavation of a new channel and the formation of a new river bed.

Extra measures were adopted to ensure segregation of waste was undertaken successfully throughout the scheme delivery whilst the existing Day Brook channel remained operational and  was filled in once works were complete.

Two new bridges were constructed following value engineering alongside associated footways, lighting, benches and litter bins which completed the scheme.

The project was deemed a success, with Cllr Jim Creamer saying: “I am absolutely delighted to see the outcome of this project…not only does it look good but the work also serves a very practical purpose in that it has improved the existing flood plain in the area, increasing the amount of water that can be retained within the park in the event of flash floods.”
