Projects / Former Cotton Mill/Industrial Premises

Redstart was retained by Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction LLP to undertake remediation and enabling works of a former Cotton Mill.

Redstart undertook remediation and enabling works and prepared a works validation report for a residential development comprising 48No. low rise residential dwellings and 2No. blocks of low level flats with associated driveways and garden areas, estate roads and infrastructure on a 1.17Ha former mill site, Padiham, Lancashire.

Redstart managed the decommissioning of 2No. water abstraction boreholes and the removal and processing of a culvert cover, damming and diversion of the river in accordance with environment agency permit to allow refurbishment of the culvert


The site historically comprised the Albion Cotton Mill with a culverted brook. Buildings associated with the previous uses had been demolished in recent years with the majority of demolition material removed from site however, footings and sub-surface structures remained. Redstart completed a programme of site enabling, remediation and engineering works. These works were planned to sort and process site won (and suitable imported) materials in order to create the required development platform and render the site suitable for the proposed development. The works were undertaken in accordance with the regulator approved Remediation and Enabling Works Strategy.
