DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT:

And of course, they all come with roads, drainage, existing structure demolition and ultimately 1000s and 1000s of units and community assets such as schools and employment hubs. Initial infrastructure alone on these sites is now approximately £250m involving different contractual approaches and formats.
