Works complete at Ellesmere for client Homes England
01 March 2019
In October 2018 VHE commenced work to reclaim land in Ellesmere, Shropshire, for client Homes England.
The works to the 1.81Ha former railway station and sidings site involved re-engineering of the site to form development platforms for residential development. This included the break out and crush of historical foundations, hard standings and drainage diversion.
The works involved extensive environmental monitoring including mitigation for working around the Grade II listed former station building to the southern site boundary.
To minimise fuel costs, emissions and noise to the local community VHE utilised the latest solar technology to power some of the site office establishment.
The contract completed early November and the site was awarded a Considerate Constructors Scheme certificate - emulating previous standards having regularly been judged Beyond Compliance on Homes England sites.
