Gallagher has been appointed by Warings (part of Bouygues Developments) for the enabling and groundwork’s packages for the new Kent History Centre & residential development, on land at James Whatman Way, Maidstone, Kent. The site is prominently situated on the dual carriageway from junction 6 M20 motorway at the entrance to the town.
The scheme involves the construction of a new library centre (Kent County Council) with 60 residential units and 57 care units (Housing 21) above with associated access, parking and landscaping.
Initially Gallagher works will include the excavation and disposal to our own tipping facilities of some 9,500m3 of earthworks, construction of piling platforms using materials from Gallagher’s own Hermitage Quarry, bored piling attendance and installation of sheet piled retaining walls. Drainage, ducting and tarmacadam surfacing to the external areas will complete this groundwork’s package.
