Pillar: Social Value

Ipswich Wet Dock Flood Gates

This project was part of the Environment Agency’s ongoing programme to upgrade Ipswich’s flood defences and one of a number of schemes overseen by Jackson on the town’s waterfront.

Warrior Square Gardens

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. 

Ashford Ring Road

This exciting, award-winning urbanisation project saw Jackson charged with rejuvenating the town centre ring road in Ashford, Kent.

Dormay Street River Wall Replacement

This £2.5m undertaking at Dormay Street in Wandsworth was a major enabling works project for the Thames Tideway Tunnel Scheme and involved replacing a section of the river wall that was at high risk of collapsing into the Bell Lane Creek.

Newhaven Flood Alleviation Scheme

Working on behalf of the Environment Agency, Jackson Civil Engineering designed and built over four kilometres of flood defences through the East Sussex port town of Newhaven.

Rathmore Road Improvement Scheme

Jackson used this key road scheme to not only improve traffic flows in the transport quarter of Gravesend but also involve local school children in an innovative heritage street art project.

Clacton Coastal Defence Scheme

This critical construction scheme to stabilise cliffs on the Essex coast saw the Jackson team bring considerable social value to the project by working with the local community on a number of public initiatives.

Beccles Southern Relief Road

Construction of the Beccles Southern Relief Road is notable for the sophisticated drainage works that accompanied it and the raft of ecological protection measures that took place as part of the build.

A2300 Upgrade

Jackson was appointed as main contractor on this scheme, which involved a design and build upgrade of the existing single carriageway A2300 to a dual carriageway, linking the Sussex town of Burgess Hill to the A23/M23 strategic road.
