Kings Reach Development – Biggleswade

MML were appointed principal contractor for the earthworks on over 24,000m3 on four Public Open Space (POS) areas at the Kings Reach Development in Biggleswade. This involved working with designers and clients to ensure that all cut and fill strategies were designed efficiently and with minimal road movements of materials around the development.

MML were responsible for ensuring that all the ground levels were accurately achieved per design levels. Our in-house engineering facilities and use of a GPS assisted Dozer allowed MML to work to designs within a very accurate tolerance and easily adapt to design changes.

MML also installed over 3800 linear metres of underground drainage channels over the POS areas. A French drain system was installed by MML importing shingle and perforated pipe. The excavated soils were reused in the landscaping phase.

The Kings Reach Development maintained a goal of having no muck away from the site. MML worked to manage materials and stockpile excess soils for future use by other contractors and sourcing suitable materials on site where necessary. All vehicle movements were planned as to minimise the disturbance to any surrounding residence.

MML were also contracted for the construction of over 2000 linear metres of footpaths around the POS areas and a Multi-Use Games Area of 600m2.
