Longford Park

Banbury

Project Overview:

The overall project is a consortium venture with Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, Barratt Homes and Bovis Homes which involves the construction of a large, phased, residential development on a site located south of Banbury, Oxfordshire with associated on-site infrastructure and local community facilities.

 

In total some 1,070 dwellings are being constructed across 4-5 phases with associated employment land, a school, a village centre and a new central public park.

 

GHPC Group Ltd has been involved from the beginning of the project as Consortium CDM-C / PD for  certain elements of the infrastructure delivery including highways and sewer canal crossing as well as acting solely on behalf of Taylor Wimpey as Working Drawings Architect and CDM Advisor.

Key Constraints:

With such major development works there were several constraints involved in the project which were integrated into the design and planning phases to reduce the risk involved during the construction phase:

Sensitivity to surrounding area and local community

Site adjacent to protected canal

Environmental considerations including: breeding birds, bats, badgers

Local footpaths and walkways used by public in close proximity to site entrances

Multiple construction phases underway over consortium site

Site Security

Ground Stability issues in certain areas and some low level contaminated ground in local hotspots

Groundwater considerations during construction

Overhead services and diversion works required

Balancing design with maintenance issues & operational safety
