Improving the environmentAs a result of our careful design and material selection, the team managed to ensure 99% of waste was recycled on the scheme.
Working together with our supply chainA real focus on local procurement ensured 90% of project spend was channelled through local SME’s
Protecting peopleDuring the project, the team trained a number of mental health first aiders and delivered mental health toolbox talks – as a result, we managed to help two workers to get back on track from really challenging positions in their lives.
The biggest challenge on the project was ensuring the community were bought along the journey and had a positive change toward the development – through numerous engagements, events, a dedicated microsite, drone videos and open site visits, the team managed to transform a community.
With an extensive amount of groundworks delivered on the scheme, the team faced significant risk. Early geographical surveys and investigations enabled us to change the foundations and contamination issues ensuring no impact to the programme. The team also implemented an off site pre-cast solution for the retaining walls to deliver programme savings.
“The shift of the community here has been immense. They now feel ownership and they feel proud of it and that’s credit to you guys for the work you have done with the community. In fact that was the strongest thing about you and why we selected you initially - don't lost that, it so important. You walked the talk with Ultra CCS and that really showed. You have restored my faith in the industry!"Mark Walsh
