Named after the Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, the aim of this comprehensive urban expansion is to create a whole new district to the north east of Aldershot. Our project, cost and safety management experts have been supporting the developers, Grainger, to implement this ambitious scheme since they obtained planning permission.
Using the surplus of military land once known as the Aldershot Garrison, Wellesley will include 3,850 new homes and 2 primary schools along with all the necessary amenities and transport connections to allow the area to thrive. The development includes the refurbishment of a number of large listed buildings such as the Military Cambridge Hospital which will be converted as part of the project.
As health and safety advisor and principal designer for the scheme we have been able to influence the construction designs, methods and working standards from an early stage. Amongst our many duties we are also managing the discharge of planning conditions as well as preparing programmes and cost plans to ensure that the scheme stays on schedule and within budget.
