Amwell Nature Reserve: timber works
The client: Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
The brief: The works included small scale demolitions; minor grading and timber fencing (post & rail, post & wire, hit & miss with concrete posts, timber handrails and leaning rails); installing wooden gates, boardwalks and viewing platforms; installation of a new timber bridge and the restoration and relocation of an old cast iron bridge; installation of steps; and installation and refurbishment of timber seats.
Our solution: We deployed dedicated teams of full time, in house staff to work alongside the client's retained landscape architect to work to an exact and highly specified brief. We provided all of the labour and materials and were thus able to maximise efficiency. The work was carried out in a safe and timely manner and the welfare of the wildlife was maintained at all times throughout the project.
The result: Amwell Nature Reserve was officially opened by Hillary Benn MP, the then Government's Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, who praised Amwell Nature Reserve as an "island of respite" during a site visit. The project took six months and was completed on time and within budget.
