The Ely Mill Regeneration Scheme was a site preparation project for the construction of 800 new homes and a neighbourhood centre. The construction site was previously occupied by Arjo Wiggins Paper Mill which was closed in 1999 and lay derelict for 10 years due to complexities with access, flooding and contamination.
Griffiths started work on this Design and Build Contract in February 2016 to construct a new 100m multi span bridge on piled foundations, 1km of single lane main carriageway, 3.5km of drainage, additionally to this:
o Hydrocarbons – buried underground and covered with 600mm of clean cover
o Asbestos – picked and removed off site to a licensed specialist waste facility
o Knotweed and Himalayan Balsam
