Brianswell Grove Social Housing Development

Poleglass, Northern Ireland


Poleglass, Northern Ireland

Build (with Contractor designed elements)

Brianswell Grove comprised the construction of 34 new build dwellings, together with demolitions and associated site development works on a confined site with surrounding roads infrastructure facilitating local residents and schools’ traffic.

Detailed works included:

  • Traditional construction of variable house types to Lifetime Homes Standards, CFSH Level 3 and Secure by Design.
  • strip foundations, access road, parking, soft landscaping, walling and fencing.
  • boundary treatments to existing developments and some trench fill.
  • culverting and diversion of water course in a residential area.

Within the boundary of the site we established designated walkways & site traffic paths so the flow of personnel and plant was fluid/ unimpeded at all times.

Staff parking was off-site – we operated a park and ride system from rented parking facilities nearby.  We programmed the work so that staff works were efficient and significant trade overlap avoided.

Pre-start we established a project Traffic Management Plan in conjunction with DRD Roads Service and Emergency Services and local residents – this facilitated just in-time deliveries, incorporated a delivery schedule to mitigate vehicular congestion.

Due to deep foundations all delivery vehicles were kept at safe HSE compliant distances from works. The project was registered to Considerate Constructors – achieving Beyond Compliance across all assessment areas.
