In March the Government gave the green light for Warrington Borough Council to acquire all remaining land needed for this important £19.8m project. This decision paved the way for the Council’s contractor, Balfour Beatty, to mobilise to site.
Works have now begun in earnest to transform the town’s busiest road networks for the benefit of local residents and businesses, transportation, air quality and public realm. See further details on the scope and benefits of the scheme here.
Ramboll is providing construction phase site support as the designers site representative including BIM management and BIM level 2 modelling, project management, civil engineering and environmental consultancy services.
Over three and a half years ago Ramboll was appointed as ECI design consultants by Balfour Beatty for the Warrington Centre Park Link under the SCAPE framework. More on Ramboll’s involvement here.
Paul Lawrenson from Warrington Borough Council said: ‘All of the Ramboll team on this project have embraced being part of the wider project team and this has fostered an excellent working relationship.’
The Centre Park Link is a highways scheme designed to relieve traffic congestion and increase the attractiveness of Warrington as a place to live. As ECI design consultants, Ramboll undertook detailed design to BIM Level 2 compliance.
