Challenges Tamdown have worked with the client to overcome on site have included:
- Restricted site access in the centre of a major town – We ensured close client and community liaison was undertaken for co-coordinating deliveries with Berkeley Homes and all other trades, using smaller delivery vehicles to minimise disruption.
- Acquifer below site – Tamdown managed the hazardous substances and ensured specific training for site and robust emergency procedure which ensured no pollution incidents.
- 12m fall across site over 400m – Site was terraced on initial occupation removing ground obstructions and the whole site required an extensive array of permanent RC and brick/block retaining walls.
