Shortwood Business Park Barnsley
William Saunders became involved at Shortwood Business Park when the remediated former brickworks site was undeveloped and without any infrastructure.
Also included in the phase 1 development was the construction of 55,000sq.ft of high quality industrial development that was speculatively built to encourage employment into the area.
A particular challenge on this site was the undulating sub-strata of this previously open cast site and the presence of varying depths of fill ranging from 1m to in excess of 20m in places. These varied ground conditions required a period of surcharging to allow the ground to settle prior to construction and ensure limited differential settlement once units were constructed.
William Saunders also project managed the subsequent 63,000sq.ft phase 2 development as well as administering a contract to infill a large, existing pond in the centre of the site.
