Topographical Surveys

As we frequently have a need for topographical data we have now started to undertake topographical surveys ourselves. We have therefore appointed a very well qualified land surveyor and purchased very high specification equipment allowing us to undertake topographical surveys for our own needs as well as for the requirements of all developers, land owners and managers. If you have a need for a topographical survey please feel free to contact us for a competitive quotation.

West Drayton, Hillingdon

The West Drayton project was for the construction of 51 residential flats with 152 sqm retail outlets  and a cafe of around 130 sqm on the ground floor,  highstreet frontage split between two premises. To ensure car parking levels met with Hillingdon’s requirements a number of parking stackers were proposed. EAS prepared the Transport Assessment, Flood Risk and Drainage Statement as well as liaised with Hillingdon Highways to undertake a Stopping Up process for three areas of redundant highway space.

Uxbridge High Street

The project in Uxbridge was at the edge of the Town Centre with a high level PTAL, with the exception of disabled parking spaces this was a car free development for 49 flatted units but also incorporating a dining hall as a replacement for the existing charity run establishment on the site. EAS prepared the Transport Assessment, Stage 1 Road Safety Audit and also a PERS audit (Pedestrian Environment Review System) to satisfy the requirements of Transport for London.

Millbrook Proving Ground

EAS provided flood risk advice to Millbrook, one of Europe’s leading test and engineering solution providers for the automotive, public transport, energy and defence markets for the development of 24,900sqm of office, research and development space.

The Flood Risk Assessment identified an outline drainage strategy for the attenuation of large areas of proposed hardstandings and building areas by utilising a number of large balancing ponds around the site.

The site received planning permission in September 2014, providing the potential for a large number of jobs and future development in the local area.

Liverpool Greenacres Woodland Burial Park Near To Completion

The Liverpool Greenacres Woodland Burial Park at Rainham is very near to completion, EAS undertook the pre-application transport and flood risk assessment and then the surface and foul drainage design, highway access, internal access road and car park layout design. As the ground water was high at the site the car park and access road were raised above existing levels but still fully attenuated using a lined system with porous pavement creating a large storage volume. The system was designed to also accept the surface water run-off from the adjacent reception hall. The run off was attenuated via an orifice plate system.’

‘We are very pleased to have been appointed on a further Woodland Burial Park in Hampshire, this is a smaller scale development than that at Liverpool, but a very compact and interesting project’

Greater London Redevelopment Projects

EAS has been appointed to work on a number of redevelopment projects in Greater London involving of the order of 50 flatted units and metro style supermarket stores. One of these in Ealing required detailed traffic modeling of a congested junction. The planning period for this site is coming to an end soon but all transport matters are positive.

Greenacres Woodland Burial Parks

EAS has been appointed by Greenacres Woodland Burial Parks to work on an approved project in St Helens Liverpool. EAS prepared the Transport Assessment, Flood Risk Assessment and detailed civil engineering design for the project which is now being constructed.

Woodland Trust Car Park

The Woodland Trust car park for the Jubilee Woods project in the National Forest at Normanton le Heath was completed and opened for use in March following discharge of the final planning conditions. ‘Workforce Civils’ were the appointed contractor and completed the project on time and on budget.

Our New Principle Engineer

We are delighted to have appointed Marianna Dyason as a Principal Engineer. Maz is a very experienced all rounder but also expert in detailed Civils 3D design software and is able to lead on the more complex design projects that we are increasingly involved with especially those involving detailed infrastructure, drainage and earthworks design.
