The Jackson team constructed a number of link roads, a cycle path and footway to provide access to the park and business units, anticipated to total up to 750,000 sq ft in size.
Nearby roads were also upgraded, new street lighting was installed and verges converted to cycle paths.
The team achieved a carbon reduction of 18kg/t in this scheme by using ‘Foambase’ for surfacing the footpaths. The product is made up of 94% recycled materials and doesn’t need asphalt plant to pour or set.
The works also incorporated reinforcement of an Anglian Water mains pipe to the park and the expansion of the fibre network, delivering super-fast broadband to businesses.
Prolonged snow and other poor weather threatened to delay the project significantly due to earthworks conditions. But our specialist supply chain partner Tom Blackwell helped stabilise all earthworks, preventing any extension of the programme and ensuring we completed the scheme on time.
