Nine Elms
Barratt London engaged our services to undertake the large-scale enabling package at Nine Elms Point, which forms part of a large regeneration scheme in Battersea, London.
The development comprises 737 homes with a mix of studio and one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses as well as a new flagship Sainsbury’s.  
Technical challenges
The congested parameters within the heart of Battersea presented many logistical challenges with multiple surrounding stakeholders involved in large scale construction programmes.
Early engagement with the stakeholders was key to achieving the programme and constraints involved with the logistics of working close to Wandsworth gyratory and the Nine Elms regeneration scheme as a whole.  

To mitigate the potential of any logistical conflicts, our site team and and logistics manager held strong lines of communication with all surrounding parties. This act of communication and collaboration ensured smooth and seamless logistical operations while providing continuity in services.

The end result was a project completed ahead of time and on budget and zero health, safety or environmental incidents.

Works included the excavation of 87,000m3 of soils to form a basement and a 15,000m2 designed platform for the piling contractor.

Attendance to the piling contractor resulted in an additional 25,000m3 of pile arisings for offsite removal. Up to nine excavators were deployed on the project at its peak in addition to five piling rigs. All this took place on a relatively small footprint.

The full scope of works involved remediation, infrastructure, earthworks and haulage.
Using our experience, we were able to minimise the disposal to landfill by ensuring segregation was maximised and stockpile management.  

All works were carried out utilising our FORS Gold accredited in-house fleet.
