Derek Daly explains: “the construction of the new bridges and road is the vital first step in kick-starting the development. Once they are in place, Berkeley West Thames can open up the Southall Waterside scheme to wider construction traffic, and begin really transforming the site”.
Our focus here at FM Conway is focused around careful phasing of the Western access works, delivering as much of the project in parallel with other preliminary construction activity as possible to cut down timescales.
FM Conway’s programme has been boosted by the fact that the majority of the construction materials for the scheme can be sourced from the business’s Heathrow asphalt plant, which lies less than half a mile west of the site; reinforcing and contributing towards FM Conway’s self-delivery promise.
“It’s a complex programme and having the Heathrow plant so close has been a major benefit, It not only gives us full control over our materials supply chain but also cuts down the need for storage on the constricted site. In delivering the earthworks for the new structures, we’ve been able to import by barge on the canal, saving time as well as reducing vehicle movements in the local area.”
