Elephant Park

Elephant Park

Elephant & Castle is undergoing a transformation like no other. We worked closely with J. Murphy’s management team to carry out a hard-standing landscape package in a challenging environment.

Hard & Soft Landscaping to Complement Award Winning Monumnet

Description:

Provided hard and soft surfacing incorporating paving, kerbs, tarmac, reinforced concrete and lift base. Approximately 1500 m2 of paving, installation of road which included a subbase, base and asphalt.

We excavated around live services and relocated others. Provided back fill to exploration trenches, installed kerbs, paving and tree pits. Re-routed a road junction, reinstatement of road surfacing, installation of street furniture and completed the construction of a Santander bike stand. 
Challenges: 

A number of challenges surfaced but solutions were found to overcome them;

•    Restricted access,
•    Live services (some re-routed),
•    Other contractors in area,
•    Accelerated programme of works,
•    Continuous changes to phasing – MCL adapted to all
•    Onsite adaption to material
•    Working around conservation listed oak trees
