Bellway Homes Thames Gateway had purchased the first of two phases on the priory mill site based on an original masterplan which showed a substation required for the whole site located in Bellways parcel.

There were extensive cost and programme implications of a substation on a site with only 30 units.

Bellways did not want to lose developable area within their land.

The water network records were incomplete in the area and there were a number of anomalies on the Thames water plans received which lead to concerns regarding the extent of the works required to achieve a new water connection.

Our solution.

TriConnex identified that the site should be able to be fed from a single LV supply removing the need for a substation on the Bellway site and pushing the requirement into the second phase.

This was confirmed in a formal LV Point of connection from UKPN which was immediately accepted to secure the supply.

TriConnex managed the water connection on behalf of Bellway ensuring that all necessary investigation works were carried out before securing Thames Waters agreement to connect to the water main identified within the new entrance to the site.

The results.

By removing the need for a substation, TriConnex saved the client in excess of £70,000 or the equivalent of £2,300 per plot as well as the loss of developable land, the aesthetic impact and the effect on sales revenues for the adjacent plots.

Identifying the water connection point early within the build programme allowed the works to be sequenced in with other highway works as well as locking down the new water network costs and removing the risks of significant off site works.

Design stage

The next stage is to translate the agreed technical solution into a buildable reality. The focus is on the intricate detail here and all relevant third party stakeholders are contacted with this in mind. Importantly safety risks are clarified at this stage and relevant risk assessments carried out where required.
