Alum Waters Sewer Flooding Alleviation Scheme


Alum Waters Sewer Flooding Alleviation Scheme - £3.5m

Esh-Stantec, working in partnership with Northumbrian Water, completed the Alum Waters Sewer Flooding Alleviation Scheme.

Due to a historic sewer flooding problem which was contaminating farm land, work was required to protect from sewer discharge which was previously blighted by hydraulic incapacity.

The scheme comprised the construction of a 3,200m3 storage tank which incorporates a low flow channel with a jet flow regulator fitted to limit pass forward flow rate.

A weir wall was located between lanes two and three of the storage tank to create 'wet' and 'dry' sides to the tank.

In dry weather operation and a proportion of typical year rainfall events, flows are confined to the 'wet' side, and only in larger rainfall events do flows spill into the 'dry' side.

This arrangement aims to reduce overall tank annual maintenance requirements by reducing the utilised storage in a typical year and subsequent siltation within the tank.

Eston Community Village


Eston Community Village - £6.1m

The Eston Community Village development comprised the construction of 38 apartments across 4 two-storey blocks and 13 bungalows.

Located adjacent to the existing Barnaby House Extra Care Facility, an extension of the existing car park was completed to provide parking for the new facility.

The purpose-built accommodation is for persons with dementia, mental health problems and learning difficulties.

The facility includes a large and welcoming communal lounge area and the properties have dual aspect views of the external environment and a large amount of natural light.

The gardens and landscaping have been designed to aid orientation across the site through a change in planting scheme.

Lord Gort House


Lord Gort House - £1.1m

External and internal refurbishment works were undertaken at Lord Gort Court to improve the appearance of the building and modernise the outdated flat interiors.

The two-storey residential building which provides retirement housing was constructed in the early 1970’s and contains 31 self-contained apartments.

Heart of the City 2


Heart of the City 2 - £884k

The Heart of the City scheme comprised the conversion of a large retail unit into 4 separate retail units. Modifications were undertaken to the glass frontage, providing each unit with their own entrance and back of house space.

Alterations to the existing heating, ventilation and plumbing installations were completed to accommodate the new layout.

North Moor House


North Moor House - £5.7m

North Moor House is located North of the market town, Northallerton.

The development will see the creation of a new central Community Mental Health Team base, which will provide both staff accommodation and clinical facilities for specialist community mental health services.

The hub will be accessed via the construction of a new road which directly junctions the Northallerton Link Road.

With a three, two and one step down design, the building aims for a contemporary 21st century interpretation and has been developed through consultation with service users, carers and clinical staff to become a ‘landmark building’.

Barnsdale Road


Barnsdale Road - £7.6m

Barnsdale Road is located two miles north of Castleford in Allerton Bywater. Esh’s affordable housing division transformed 4.6 acres of land formerly used as a colliery station yard into 12 two-bedroom, 38 three-bedroom, and five four-bedroom houses, for a mix of shared ownership and affordable rent tenures.

Contemporary in design and in keeping with a neighbouring urban village, the 55 new homes are arranged in small terraces and semi-detached units, each with their own landscaped garden area and parking facilities.

Esh was appointed as the design and build contractor working on behalf of Yorkshire Housing.


International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) Phase 1


International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) Phase 1 - £8.4m

The International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP) is a joint venture between Sunderland City Council and South Tyneside Council, with HBD appointed as development partner. Spanning 370-acres, IAMP is one of the largest live schemes in the country and Esh Construction’s civil engineering division was appointed to deliver the infrastructure required for the first phase of the IAMP development.

The scheme comprised a 1,500-metre highway with two access points along with the installation of pathways, kerbing, traffic signals, associated telecoms and utilities. Bulk earthworks, drainage, landscaping and environmental mitigation works were also undertaken, as well as the creation of four attenuation ponds and a new substation engineered platform.

IAMP is a shovel-ready site, offering bespoke, world class facilities for advanced manufacturing and engineering businesses across a range of industries.

Killingworth & Longbenton Water Management Phase 3


Killingworth & Longbenton Water Management Phase 3 - £2.8m

Following successful work on Phase 1 and 2 of the Killingworth and Longbenton Sustainable Surface Water Management scheme, Esh-Stantec, working in partnership with Northumbrian Water, was appointed to undertake Phase 3.

The third phase was at Killingworth Lake and involved the provision of storage and surface water separation. The seven-hectare lake holds the majority of surface water generated by Killingworth as well as providing a recreational open space in the town.

The scheme provided additional storage capacity within the lake of 3000m3 in the form of a flood storage basin created along the southern perimeter of the lake.

A new overflow weir was constructed on the lake edge, so when the water in the lake rises above a specified level, water spills over into the new detention basin which provides storage capacity.

The lake was disconnected from the combined and foul sewerage systems which was the previous arrangement, thus reducing the flood risk within the catchment.

The development also comprised ancillary works including new public footpaths, a new access off Southgate (the highway dissecting the lake), new fishing platforms, relocation of existing furniture/picnic tables, new public information signs, floating islands, bat and bird boxes and new wildflower bedding surrounding the lake.

Low Farm Drive


Low Farm Drive - £6.4m

Delivered on behalf of Beyond Housing, Low Farm Drive is a development of 52 new homes across 4 sites in Redcar. The properties are a mix of bungalows, flats and two, three and four-bedroom houses.

Construction is of traditional build and the design has been selected to fit in with the surrounding residential properties.

Tennants Auction House Extension


Tennants Auction House Extension - £8.4m

An extension was constructed on the existing Tennants Auction House to include function suites, visitor viewing areas, a restaurant and private sales.

Deepcar Access Road and Bridge


Deepcar Access Road and Bridge - £2.5m

The scheme comprised the construction a new bridge spanning 30.5m over the River Don and a new approach road to connect Manchester Road to a housing development of 417 new homes.

National Conservation Centre


National Conservation Centre - £5.5m

The scheme transformed the derelict Engine Shed into a world leading education centre for building conservation.

The building contains a learning and visitor centre, along with a purpose-built 3D theatre.

Whilst retaining much of its original fabric and character, the existing building was extended to the East and the West with modern timber frame extensions.

The East extension provides office space, design studios and laboratories. The West extension includes a reception area, entrance and further teaching and seminar spaces.

To preserve the centre's heritage, the original windows were removed, refurbished and re-installed. The original roof was stripped back, cleaned and the slate dressed for re-instatement.

Bodmin Road


Bodmin Road - £3.7m

Bodmin Road is the first land led development delivered by Esh Construction within Yorkshire. Delivered on behalf of Yorkshire Housing, the scheme transformed the site of two former care homes which were demolished in 2016.

Bodmin Road comprised 28 houses and four apartments with a mix of two and three bedrooms for shared ownership and affordable rent tenures. With a design that integrates into the neighbouring properties and surroundings, the houses are arranged in semi-detached terraces and the apartments are in a two-storey block, all with parking facilities.

An existing road was upgraded to provide access into the estate and a footpath constructed to improve pedestrian safety.

Wyvern Park


Wyvern Park - £5.7m

Situated on the edge of Skipton, Esh’s civil engineering division is currently on-site delivering new infrastructure and enabling works at Wyvern Park. The 58-acre site is being developed by HBD to accommodate 188 new homes and a new industrial and business park.

The scheme comprises a new spine road which joins Carleton Road and the A629 Skipton bypass, with roundabouts adjoining either end, while a 600m long spur route will branch off the spine, providing future opportunity to improve the access onto a nearby industrial estate.

Due to its flood-prone location, major drainage works will also be completed including the installation of an attenuation basin capable of storing 6,600m3 and a drainage system capable of storing 18,000 litres within the upstream surface water pipework.
