The Project

Re-development works carried out to a residential estate in Lea, Preston. Settlement caused by underlying peat on the existing housing estate affected the roads, gardens, drains and services on the site.

CHC developed an innovative engineering solution together with their consultants Johnson, Poole and Bloomer to prevent demolition of the houses and reconstruct the area for the local community.

The project required excavation and removal of imported fill around the houses, raising ground levels using polystyrene blocks to reduce the loading on the peat, installation of concrete piles and slabs to support the sewers and utilities and installation of a pumping station and utilities together with hard and soft landscaping.

This project was awarded the Green Organisation Green Apple National Bronze Award for the Built Environment and Architectural Heritage.
