Groundworks & Earthworks

Bath Western Riverside is a major mixed use redevelopment in Bath. The proposed scheme comprises the creation of homes, two parks, a primary school, restaurants, other commercial uses and health and cultural facilities.
The current site area comprised the former Stothert and Pitt Crane Factory and required re-profiling and re-engineering prior to the construction of retaining walls, foundations, infrastructure (drainage and roads) and substructures to allow multi-storey mixed use buildings to be constructed in a number of phases across the site. Following completion of the build, extensive external finishing works were required.
