Over the past few years, a number of developers have been carrying out background technical studies on 320 acres of land located on the outskirts of Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire. The developers have combined their land interests into a single company, The Bishops Stortford North Consortium.
The Consortium comprises of four of the UK’s leading housebuilders, Bovis Homes, Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon and Tilia Homes, together with a strategic land promotion company, The Fairfield Partnership. It was formed to comprehensively plan this important site and ensure that all necessary supporting infrastructure such as schools, parks and community facilities, and highways and public transport improvements can be delivered alongside the new homes.
The development will be built over two phases; the Western Neighbourhood and the Eastern Neighbourhood.
ECL was appointed by the Consortium as the Principal Contractor in May this year to support the expansive infrastructure for the Eastern stage of the project.
Andrew Lennox, Senior Quantity Surveyor at ECL added.
This project makes full use of our infrastructure skillset, delivering bulk earthworks, deep drainage and S278 works to a busy A road, whilst maintaining the construction programme and achieving key sectional completion dates in good time.
