Redstart were retained to undertake sustainable remediation and enabling works

The proposed development area is made up of a single 2Ha parcel of land and forms the final stage of the Cromwell road housing development. The site was formerly occupied by the Mersey Iron Works and electrical engineering works until demolition to slab level in the early 2010s. Significant underground structures were identified, excavated and processed during the works. Careful materials management and re-engineering was required to prepare the site for a housing re-development. The works were completed on time with minimal materials requiring disposal. Redstart prepared detailed plans of the works and a remediation contractors completion report detailing the works undertaken.


The site historically comprised an iron & engineering works with heavy slabs and widespread contamination. All footings and sub-surface structures remained on site.
Redstart completed a programme of site enabling, remediation and engineering works, including treatment of VOC and TPH impacted soils.
The hardstanding were recycled for piles mat and road capping. The site as delivered for VSC foundation solution ahead of programme.
