27.10.2016 - Mick George Ltd begin on huge infrastructure package
Works have this week commenced at one of the Eastern Region’s largest business parks. The Grovemere Property owned ‘Lancaster Way’ development, home to a diverse mix of over 70 businesses, currently occupies 175 acres, and is set to undergo major infrastructure enhancements.
Mick George Ltd will act as Principal Contractor to undertake the first phase of a £3.3 million civils & infrastructure package which will include installation of new roads, footpaths, drainage, pumping station and a balancing pond on the Lancaster Way Business Park in Ely. In preparation for these provisions, archaeological backfilling and compound installation has already been completed on-site.
Thomas Brand, Operations Director Grovemere Property Ltd said: “The first phase of our on-site infrastructure is an important step for Lancaster Way Business Park and Grovemere are very pleased to be working with Mick George Ltd again. We have found Mick George Ltd to be both professional and efficient throughout the tender stage and look forward to working with them during the contract.”
The six-month programme is another major civils package to supplement the works the company is presently undertaking on the Stanton Cross site in Wellingborough and builds upon previous works concluded for the developer in one of the fastest growing regions in the country.
The business park which has recently achieved accredited ‘Enterprize Zone Status’ is attracting commercial businesses seeking bespoke / custom built premises. With an increasing client portfolio recently locating on the development, Mick George Ltd has also managed to secure significant Earthworks agreements directly with companies constructing on site.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’We’re really pleased to have secured this contract. The project has a number of different facets, and it is a testament to how highly our Civils service is regarded within the industry. We’ve worked alongside Grovemere previously and have formed a fantastic partnership.’’
Stumpcontinued: ‘’It’s exciting times for the business. We’re working on a number of high profile developments across our core contracting disciplines at the moment, with many more in the immediate pipeline.’’
