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.
Aldine House is a modern, purpose built secure centre for young people aged between 10-17 located on the outskirts of the City of Sheffield.
The scheme involved the construction of a two-storey extension and the conversion of an under-croft area into useable space.
All elements of the new building, including fixtures and fittings, were designed and installed to a specification befitting a secure unit.
The facility includes classrooms, a design and technology workshop, sports hall, kitchen, gym and en-suite bedrooms.
The under-croft conversion provides a space for both visitors and staff, including the creation of a meeting room, training rooms, sleep over areas and a medical room.
The design and build project comprised the construction of 28 new properties, this includes; 9 two-bedroom bungalows, 6 two-bedroom houses, 12 three-bedroom houses and 1 five-bedroom house.
A new road was constructed to replace a previous road into the site.
Based on the site of Ravenscliffe High School and Sports College, the project comprised the construction of a U-shaped, two-storey sixth form facility for pupils with Special Educational Needs.
External works included all associated hard and soft landscaping.
Delivered across two phases, the public realm project focussed on delivering improvements to the city centre street-scene in two adjacent streets; High Street West and Bridge Street.
The works on Bridge Street included the removal of existing bollards, stone slab footpaths and parking bay block paving. Subsequently, the paving was replaced, new kerb lines installed, road markings, signage and 150m of road surfacing completed.
On High Street West, works included; the lifting and replacement of existing paving and the creation of new steel framed tree pits for 9 existing trees, as well as bespoke granite boulders doubling up as street furniture and steel street benches.
Esh-Stantec, working in partnership with Northumbrian Water, was appointed to undertake 3 phases of work to manage surface water in the Killingworth and Longbenton areas of North Tyneside.
It was identified that 3,594 properties are considered at risk of flooding, with over 500 properties known to be affected.
Works comprised of SuDS measures being delivered at multiple sites, this involved the diversion of a designated main river and the provision of storage across multiple sites.
The team delivered a suitable and sustainable solution with a greater level of flood protection to properties and wider benefits to the community.
Grade II listed residential care home Beddell House underwent a transformation to improve accommodation and provision for residents as the bed sit layout had become outdated.
Internal and external refurbishment works were completed to provide a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments with bathroom and living room, communal areas, dining area and new catering kitchen.
Situated among 15 acres of maintained grounds, Beddell House is a care home for the elderly and remained occupied and operational throughout the works being completed.
All improvement works and decoration were chosen to assist those with dementia, enabling residents to identify their surroundings and reduce confusion or disorientation.
Refurbishment works included; installation of new boiler system, remodelling of original layout, installation of kitchens and bathrooms, construction of dormer windows, stone work, roof repairs and installation of lighting.
A cinema room and bar lounge were created, and the existing lounge was fully refurbished.
The existing conservatory was demolished to make way for a larger orangery which was more energy efficient and could be used all year round.
Works were completed across 6 phases. Through close liaison with the client, the residents were decanted in phases to allow for complete segregation of working areas.
This multi award-winning scheme comprised the construction of coastal defence works at Runswick Bay where the coastline and its surrounding area consist of unstable cliffs, which are susceptible to landslides.
The works included concrete repairs to 2 existing sea walls and the protection of the sea walls through the placement of 10,000 tonnes of rock armour along the bay.
The high-density Norwegian granite, each weighing between 8 and 10 tonnes, was delivered to the beach via barge and placed using 50t excavators and dump trucks.
The rock armour profile was examined to ensure that the wave energy was sufficiently reduced to limit the impacts on the existing sea wall.
Reinforced concrete steps were constructed through the rock armour to enable access to the beach. Artificial rock pools were also created to replace habitat lost and encourage sea life back into the area. The rock pools were created by drill coring into the granite to provide valuable habitat.
The newly constructed scheme offers 100 years of better protection to 96 residential and 17 non-residential properties that were predicted to be lost should the sea wall fail, of these properties 6 are listed structures.
The project comprised the construction a heritage centre located on the edge of a popular country park in Gateshead. The building design is the shape of a water wheel which was inspired by the iron works at 'Old' Winlaton Mill which harnessed the power from 9 water wheels.
The single storey centre uses traditional and interactive interpretation materials which explore and celebrate industrial, cultural and natural heritage of the Derwent Valley and surrounding area.
The untreated timber and green roof aids biodiversity and reduces pressures on the drainage system. Internally, the centre includes a café and gift shop, business incubator space, as well as networking and conference facilities.
The former elderly day centre, Waterton House, underwent re-modelling and refurbishment to create new office accommodation for Wakefield Council.
Works included; asbestos removal, structural alterations, removal of masonry walls and general refurbishment works.
Esh Civils is on site delivering Areas 3 and 4 of the new Gypsey Race Park. Located on brownfield land, the works comprise of engineering and re-profiling of the land and banks in and around the Gypsey Race watercourse.
The public realm scheme will include landscaping, tree planting, lighting installation and a new play park.
The works involved the extension of the existing NETPark technology park within Durham, including the completion of a major new road system, a number of new access routes and a new roundabout off the A177.
Construction of a new T-junction off the A177 provides a new access point to the development through carriageway widening, alongside a second access road made from the existing stub end located North of the existing mini-roundabout off Joseph Swan Road.
Additional works included; the installation of two new lay-bys, streetlighting and an art installation positioned at the entrance.
All associated drainage works were completed, including the installation of 2 storage basins (SUDS ponds).
Esh-Stantec, working in partnership with Northumbrian Water, was appointed to carry out works which involved the separation of Marden Quarry and other sources of surface water from the public sewer network.
Works undertaken included the installation of a 5m wide and 9m deep shaft and associated underground drainage.
This created a new surface water drain to separate out the existing flows from Marden Quarry pond from the combined sewer, therefore increasing the capacity and mitigating the flows from other systems.
Conewood House and Belvedere House had become outdated in design and layout, both buildings underwent remodelling and refurbishment to make them suitable for the end user.
Refurbishment works included; replacement of windows and doors, replacement of kitchens and bathrooms, external rendering, removal and construction of walls, upgrading of services, installation of new fire alarm and sprinkler systems, roof replacement and decoration.
