May 2021 – Services trench
This month the services trench was dug out so that we could put in the piping for the water mains which is the blue in the photos below.
This month, the ecologists found a badger sett and thought we might have badgers on site as well as newts! Thankfully it turned out the badgers had moved home, so we haven’t been giving them any trouble.
This month the crew started clearing the trees on site! They brought in some big machinery and also left a lovely oak tree which will be the centre of the site.
Before work starts on site, we need to do ecology, which in this case is making sure the newts are cleared from site and relocated! The newt fence is up to make sure that no newts that have been cleared get back in.
The plots are being marked out! And you can see in this video how big each plot is
Preparation works in progress so that we can install attenuation tanks in case of a hundred year flood event
Architect Luke Tozer from Pitman Tozer Architects talks us through the S6 House
Architect Alex Ely from Mae Architects who designed MyHouse talks us through plots 1 and 2
See just how big the area of woodland is in this video and just how big each of the plots are
The site is being cleared of some trees so that we can mark out the plots and start building the roads
Our PM Martin is on site to do some work, and takes us on a tour of the site, showing us where the plots and roads are, as well as the communal green space
Our MD Gus takes a tour of the Pound Lane site and shows you what we’re doing about the great crested newts that are on the site
