Bovis Homes and St Modwen Properties teamed up to deliver Stanton Cross, a flagship industrial logistics park and residential development of around 3,750 homes, with schools, shops, surgeries and recreational spaces.
This major investment in the new neighborhood will bring improvements to infrastructure and facilities in the area.
The close connection to the A1, M1, A45/A14 and Midland Mainline earmarked the Stanton Cross development as the future strategic hub. ECL was contracted by Bovis Homes to provide access and roadworks under an S278 agreement, and infrastructure works to facilitate the development.
The works commenced immediately on the off-line section of a new roundabout Wellingborough Road - required under planning - to provide safe access for HGVs.
Storm and outfall drainage was installed, along with an oil interreceptor to provide attenuation.
To account for the high levels of traffic, detailed traffic management planning was required for the works to be completed safely.
Due to close proximity to the various existing business, railway station and the town, we were required to facilitate diversions of both overhead and underground services, and interface these with the planned infrastructure.
Gas protection works were completed by a specialist subcontractor, to enable our works around the live gas main.
