Parmarbrook are excited to see site activity commence at Five Oaks Lane in Chigwell, Essex, after 20 years of development.

The new housing scheme, led by Countryside Properties and the London Borough of Redbridge, involves the construction of a new community comprising 425 new homes – to which we are providing both substantial Civil and Structural engineering services.

Key infrastructure including the extensive network of Adoptable Roads, and Drainage which comprises two large Attenuation Ponds, will be first to be implemented in Q4 of 2015. A large on-site Treatment Works will also be constructed to serve the development, incorporating a water-recycling facility as part of the site’s approach to sustainability.

Piling works are scheduled to start in November as part of the substructure package. Our engineers will be on site regularly providing a supervisory role and will work closely with the main contractor to ensure the efficient delivery of all engineering works.

We look forward to being part of the final stages of this exciting Development and will be providing regular updates as the works progress.

First dwellings are expected to be delivered in early 2016 with more information and site details available on
