Through the careful co-ordination of multiple subcontractors, Jackson oversaw the stunning regeneration of Southend’s Warrior Square Gardens - widely-regarded as a cornerstone of the town’s revival. 
The refurbishment of this key public space included extensive high quality paving, timber decking and boardwalks together with a bespoke continuous park bench, lighting and planted borders. A SUDS soakaway drainage system was installed to handle the additional drainage run-off.

Value engineering

The Jackson team worked closely with Southend Council and its consultants to find ways to value engineer the project within the available budget. This was achieved by examining different elements of the proposed works to find alternative materials, reduce the scope and undertake selective redesign

Supply chain management

The scheme required co-ordination and management of multiple subcontractors for items such as the construction of a kiosk building, landscaping, timber decking, lighting and specialist surfacing. The Jackson team was also required to co-ordinate with Southend on Sea Borough Council who were undertaking the planting to beds and planters.

Careful planning

The works were carried out while the gardens remained open to the public. This required planning and segregation of the works to ensure that sufficient areas were kept open while also ensuring protection of the public from the works taking place. Planning and programming was also necessary to accommodate planned events and activities.
