The reclamation of a 34-hectare former power station in St. Helens for high-grade residential development and public open space was carried out in a partnering arrangement with Land Regeneration Management (LRM) on an integrated design and build basis.
The VHE-LRM joint venture was also responsible for planning the project and the sale of the reclaimed land.

The work involved a sustainable approach to regeneration using materials recycled from the foundation arisings and clean cohesive materials. A total of 16ha of land for residential developments and 18ha of public open space were created.
