Barons Quay Retail and Leisure Quarter in Northwich

30-Mar-2015

D Morgan is working for Balfour Beatty on their contract for the £49m Northwich’s Barons Quay retail and leisure quarter. The contract includes:

• Trial holes and site investigation
• Site strip – the break out and removal of all hard standings, slabs, walls, bases, foundations and drainage, loaded onto dump trucks and stockpile, crushing for re-use of concrete and brick rubble
• Bulk excavation, cut and fill to level
• Design and installation of lime stabilisation for piling mats
• Forming piling platforms and place capping
• Importing aggregate materials, haulage and deposition of materials
• Installation of subgrade and sub-base layers
• Bulk filling, backfilling voids with site won subsoil and topsoil.

The reuse of materials won on site were key to D Morgan securing this work. The removal of materials from site has been minimised by the use of an effective materials management plan.

The site in Northwich town centre is surrounded by housing and active retail users including Marks and Spencer. Extensive precautionary measures are being taken with the main environmental and ecological considerations being:
    • Pollution of Watercourses
    • Nuisance to local residences
        - Dust
        - Vibration
        - Noise
    • Nuisance to road users

The Barons Quay scheme for Cheshire West and Chester Council involves the redevelopment of a 26-acre brownfield site and the construction of seven buildings in Northwich town centre. They will contain more than thirty retail units including shops, restaurants and a multi-screen cinema. High profile retail tenants include Asda and Odeon Cinemas. It creates more than 40,000m² of shopping space, new public realm spaces and parking for almost 1200 vehicles. The project redevelops existing commercial, retail, car parks, garage, vacant land, public realm, including the demolition of several buildings to facilitate the new Barons Quay.
