Our team of multidisciplinary experts are successfully delivering a project part of the Army Basing Programme (ABP) which has seen more than 140 homes completed to date, ahead of schedule.
The project will see a total of 322 new homes for Service personnel and their families in Tidworth, Wiltshire and is due to complete in March 2018.
The three and four-bedroom development, located just outside of the town centre has been designed to blend in with the character of the area, incorporating elements such as the red brickwork and traditional roof styles of the homes in surrounding villages.
Supporting the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), WYG is currently providing Project Management, and Quantity Surveying services, but has also provided specialist input into engineering, planning, archaeology, ground investigation, safety management and ecology.
Andrew Johnson, WYG, Associate said: “We are delighted to be working on this prestigious project which will benefit Service personnel and their families. Our ecology experts were on hand at the start of the project to clear the site of slow worms followed by our archaeologists when construction started as they discovered 64 Saxon remains.
Collaborative working has ensured the ongoing success of the project as we found that by having all of the DIO teams involved at an early stage has enabled a smoother process resulting in no issues on handover.”
