STG undertook the design and build of 44 Social Housing properties at Chillcott Drive in Telford.
Set in Telford, Chillcott Drive presented several challenges, mainly; 1) the only connection to the drainage being the other side of the Highway and 2) the very limited parking on and around the site for operatives and visitors. Through our pragmatic approach, design expertise and the strong relationships forged by our Project Management Team, we successfully overcame these issues.
Drainage: we used a fluid assisted drilling system to bore underneath the Highway. The installation route, depth and direction were monitored using a transmitting device that was housed within the drilling module. This enabled a connection to be made to the existing drainage, situated opposite the Highway.
Car Parking: We built a strong relationship with Anchor Trust Retirement Home, situated to the right of Chillcott Drive, to use their car park. The strength of the relationship between Anchor and STG is testament to the approach of our Project Management Team, combined with sponsoring several of Anchor’s charity events.
Works commenced with creating the site drainage and infrastructure, including new sewer connections and access roads. The properties were built using traditional methods, modern materials and components to ensure durability. Externally we have installed new utility services, private off-street parking, fencing and landscaping.
