Overview: Principal contractor on a complex residential scheme with specialist drainage requirements.
As Principal Contractor on this 20-unit residential scheme with Southern Housing Developments, Claritas managed all services, from de-risking and pre-demolition groundworks to providing technical and cost consultancy management.
A key outcome of the initial risk analysis was the site’s limitations around drainage, which resulted in a specialist SuD strategy for the construction period and entire development life cycle. Working closely with the Employers Agent, Claritas explored several options, ultimately saving Southern Housing Developments approximately £170,000 by selecting the correct filtration system and avoiding major road closures to connect the site with local existing sewers.
