Key aims and challenges

Originally developed in 1986 for the British Standards Institute, the site has evolved and diversified, and is now home to a range of occupiers including White Clarke Group, Leica Microsystems, and Ipsos Retail Performance.

This project formed part of an overall masterplan for the site, including estate improvements and the development of additional commercial property, as well as improvements to existing properties. A hotel and leisure facility is also being constructed on the campus.

The project comprised remodelling of existing parking areas, constructing new parking areas, creating new circulation areas, remodelling existing footpaths, constructing new footpaths, landscaping works, drainage works, installation of external lighting and installation of EV charging points.

The project also involved the management of various utility works by statutory undertakers, including both new services and the diversion of existing services.

The business park remained open as usual for the duration of the works period. It was a condition of the contract that a minimum of 396 car parking spaces were to remain available for use at all times.

A complex phasing plan was devised by Danaher & Walsh to enable the works to progress swiftly whilst minimising disruption to the tenants of and visitors to the business park and maintaining the availability of parking spaces.
