A city centre development with the renewal of a canal wall.

Programme comprising of demolition, site remediation of contaminated soils, canal wall improvements and restoration followed by drainage connection and completion with section 278 works. Works began with ground testing and canal wall inspections, followed by the site vegetation clearance, in order to install the limpet dam in the canal. The C&R team designed and installed a new canal wall system throughout the full length of the site, replacing what was the oldest canal section in the UK, constructed in 1772. In addition to this, the whole site some 64,000 sq m, was remediated and reconstructed to a 3m depth with provision of a minimum of 1m clean cap for residential contractor works to commence.
