Urban Edge Architecture were asked to develop proposals for a brand new retail park at Westway, Chelmsford, on the site of the former Britvic soft drinks factory. Planning permission was granted for the erection of seven A1 retail units; one A1/A3 unit; and three industrial units totalling approximately 160,000 sq.ft, plus car parking, service areas and hard and soft landscaping.

TORNEY Ltd acted as CDM advisor and were involved in the interviews of the principal contractors to assist the client in the appointment of a competent contractor. In conjunction with Urban Edge we provided the initial pre-construction health and safety Information plus support and advice throughout the project. The team undertook site safety audits and reports at key stages throughout the project, and also ensured suitable operational and maintenance information was provided to the client at the end of the project.
