"Working with Dan and the team at AWP has been a pleasure. Their input and knowledge has resulted in practical solutions to some difficult drainage issues and detailed highway matters all of which was delivered on time and as scheduled. I will be using them in the future and would highly recommend their dynamic approach."

Richard Persey Hitchcock's Business Park

Hitchcock's Business Park

Mid Devon

Following on from work we'd previously undertaken for client Richard Persey on a nearby residential scheme, we were asked to provide engineering input for this proposed Business Park on a brownfield site near Uffculme in Mid Devon.

The proposed development is for approximately 12,000 sqm of B1, B2 and B8 employment use. A comprehensive planning application was submitted covering existing buildings with extant permissions and a number of new commercial units. It is likely that the build rate of the development will be spread over the next few years depending on market conditions, but work has already started on the approved units as can be seen from the photograph above.

We prepared a Flood Risk Assessment (including a surface water strategy), a Foul Drainage Strategy and a Transport Statement to support a detailed planning application for the proposed Business Park.

The overall scheme received planning permission in November 2014 and a series of smaller detailed permissions have subsequently been granted. We are pleased to be continuing our involvement in this project by undertaking the engineering work supporting these applications and by undertaking the infrastructure design of the internal roads and service yards and the S278 works to improve the site access.
