The Thakeham Partnerships Team secured the site for Clarion after successfully partnering on previous projects.
This site has its challenges; with extreme topography, access considerations required, and unique ecology to name but a few.

Across all our projects, it’s of upmost importance to Thakeham that the community comes first, at all stages of the build. Initially, the local community had real worries about access to the scheme. Access to the site is via an existing housing estate, and parked cars made access tricky. To add to this, the removal of around 3000 lorry loads (60,000 Ton) of chalk meant communication with community was really important.

Careful consideration was given to all ecology matters including the relocation of Snakes and Slow worms to a secure re-location zone, under the careful supervision of our appointed Ecologist.

We agreed with local residents a route for Construction traffic through the estate and appointed both a gateman and an attendant stationed across the estate to ensure construction traffic followed the sign posted route. We also hired a heavy duty wheel washing unit which also recycled the waste water, similar to a car wash in order to limit material transfer to surrounding roads.

We maintained regular contact with BHCC and Highways to ensure the local authority was up to date with site progress and logistics throughout the duration of the scheme.
