Project Name: Mount Pleasant Farm
Location: Longwell Green, Bristol
Project Value: £2.25m
Engineer/Architect: Craddys / Bush
Project Period: August 2016 to October 2018
Churngold Construction has been contracted by MI-Space to deliver the new housing development at Mount Pleasant Farm at Longwell Green Bristol, due for completion Q3 2018. The Project consists of 70 new build houses and flats which are a mixture of timber framed houses, traditionally built houses and flats.
The main roads including the main drainage and services were constructed ahead of the erection of the buildings, with ground floors constructed using traditional beam and block upon strip footings, and attenuation for the storm water system controlled through the combined use of large concrete pipes and hydrobrake chambers.
At Churngold’s suggestion, PP was also granted to allow the aggregates for the contract to be produced from the rock on site, which in turn allowed the generated spoil to be kept on site, saving two thousand lorry movements.
Churngold used their nationally renowned experience in delivering the full range of Groundworks solutions to deliver the following works:
Sub-structure Foundations and Blockwork
Adoptable Storm and Foul drainage systems
Adoptable Highway works
New ducting and services
Aggregate crushing and screening
