SCP – Experienced Design and Build Collaborator


SCP have over 10 years of experience in delivering Design & Build contracts working with a variety of contractors geographically from Kent to Newcastle. Our Chelmsford office has recently completed the detailed design of the new highway and drainage infrastructure to facilitate the development of the Romney Marsh Employment Hub.

The detailed design included the completion of a 3D highway alignment design to adoptable standards ensuring the site considered the constraints and boundary features. Our Infrastructure designers engineered a solution to the foul water sewer design removing the requirement for a pumping station that had previously been expected. The SuDS drainage design was completed and SCP developed the existing preliminary design featuring below-ground storage to include a system of overground basins and swales. This provided additional amenity and biodiversity benefits.

The site also considered various environmental constraints including designing the streetlighting to be considerate of the adjacent bat feeding routes. A full set of construction issue drawings were developed, agreed and issued to the contractor during the construction phase. This enabled an early start and delivered on the benefits of D&B.

SCP provided construction support and were appointed the Principal Designer for the infrastructure works. Support was provided following the completion of the works to facilitate the development of the site.

As part of the RSK Group, SCP can deliver a diverse range of services to support any development from planning through to adoption. Should you wish to discuss a Design and Build opportunity or any other enquiry please contact SCP here.
