This project showcased the full range of Hovington’s capabilities taking the scheme from initial demolition of the existing former school building to the site remediation & enabling works package and then continuing with the full groundworks package for the new build Aldi, M&S Food Hall and the new Merseyside Society for Deaf People Headquarters Building.


The site required detailed logistical planning due to the extent of the remediation works and unforeseen contamination within the building being demolished. Carefully planning & programming ensured the critical path building works were able to progress whilst completing the remediation of the external works areas.


Detailed management of the site generated material together with Hovington providing the full demolition, remediation & groundworks package meant that we were able to overlap activities to gain valuable time savings which fed into the developer’s overall programme for the following tenant works.


Continual liaison & co-ordination with the main contractor ensured that we were able to meet the critical path programme activities. Our specialist knowledge of demolition & remediation also generated savings for the client by reducing the volume of imported material required to achieve the finished profile. The site quickly became rather tight once the building works progressed and having just one contractor for all the civils related works ensured the management of resources & activities was optimised.

"In demonstrating an honest & dedicated approach to the demands of this project, Hovington provided flexibility and a pro-active attitude that enables me to recommend them for future works where performance & quality are critical."
