Overtown Lane, Rochdale

Main contractor: Russell Construction

Chandos Remediation completed substantial enabling works including bulk earthworks required to redevelop a former mill site for construction of 45 houses.

Project Overview

The site comprised approximately 2Ha of former industrial land. A bulk earthworks operation was required to generate the construction platform. Approximately 35,000m³ of soils were placed and engineered. Soils were validated for both chemical and geotechnical suitability during the works to the satisfaction of the supervising consultant. All plots, garden roads and drives were shaped to formation level.

Our Approach

This project was an excellent example of a sustainable approach to construction with all materials required during remediation being won from site. The project was secured on the basis of a fixed price tender with all risk in the ground borne by Chandos. The project was delivered on time to the total satisfaction of the client.

“As your work is now reaching an end on the site in Rochdale I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your help in dealing with this site and the Widnes project. Both sites were very different by nature of their topography and environmental considerations. The challenges presented by the sites were not only complex but dynamic. It was a pleasure to work with a remediation contractor who could deal with the issues presented by the sites with ease and in a professional manner”.
