Taylor Woodrow Awarded Meridian Water Pre-Construction Services Agreement

Taylor Woodrow has been awarded the Pre-Construction Services Agreement (PCSA) for the design development of strategic infrastructure to support construction of 10,000 homes at Enfield Councils 6Bn Meridian Water development.

This 90M project involves the remediation of the existing site and construction of roads, bridges and flood mitigation measures; as well as electricity, gas, communications, water connections and new landscaped parkland areas.

The project is central Government funded as part of a UK-wide initiative to provide housing and generate employment and better prospects in local communities.

The Leader of Enfield Council, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said: This is a major step forward for Meridian Water, the delivery of infrastructure on the site will pave the way for the 10,000 homes and 6,000 jobs we will be creating in this development.

Successfully delivering the infrastructure on the site will be a major step forward in what will be a transformational plan for the area, providing homes, jobs and parkland for the lasting benefit of our boroughs residents.

We are proceeding with pace on this ambitious programme which transform the face of Enfield and play a major role in tackling the housing crisis locally and providing a new, state of the art development which will provide the good quality jobs and homes our residents need.

Julian Gatward, Managing Director of Taylor Woodrow said: Taylor Woodrow is delighted to work with Enfield Council to deliver the infrastructure for this landmark economic regeneration programme.

Sustainability is at the heart of our approach and we are committed to making a positive difference to the communities that we work within. Our Social Value Strategy will be a key driver in the success of the project, and includes supporting the growth of responsible regional business, protecting and enhancing the environment, and providing a variety of training and employment opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds.

This 12-month design development phase will see Taylor Woodrow work with design partner Watermans to develop a sustainable design and construction solution for the project and begin early engagement with key supply chain partners.

A two-year construction programme then follows in order to deliver this important stage in the transformational plan for the area.
