Thorney Road, Peterborough

This was the build of 50 homes in Eye, Peterborough. Millward undertook the detailed design of S38 Roads, S278 Access and S104 drainage for the properties.

The detailed design included 3D design of the roads, external levels to all plots, surface water drainage design including permeable paving, online pipe attenuation, and off line dry basin within the public open space area. Foul drainage design for the development included design of a fully adoptable pumping station in accordance with Sewers for Adoption 6th Edition and Anglian Water adoption requirements.

The S278 highway works included a priority junction access from the existing road including carriageway tie in details.
Full detailed design drawings were produced and subsequently approved by Peterborough City Council and Anglian Water.

Added Value

We work with Larkfleet on a regular basis – they utilise our commercial awareness which enables them to maximise the site at all times, enabling them to deliver a product which is attractive for their own clients and provides a greater economical return. Due to our approach of allocating small teams to deliver a client’s project, we were able to quickly react to any site layout changes during the construction period to ensure a smooth delivery.

As a long-term client, Millward clearly understood this brief and the needs and expectations of the development. Our policy is one Associate leads for each client and is the single point of contact. Our long-standing relationship with Larkfleet (a six year relationship) means we have developed an excellent relationship with their other consultants. This enables us all to work as ‘one team’ to ensure the smooth execution of each project.
