Kier was able to offer Royal Ordnance a ‘one stop shop’ to this major project that included the remediation and redevelopment of a former weapons and propellants manufacturing establishment and was previously considered one of the most contaminated sites in the UK.

Kier developed over 800,000 sq ft of industrial space, which included the largest leasehold distribution facility in the South East (pre-let to Sainsbury’s and forward sold to Aviva Investment Management), as well as 34,000 sq ft of Business Starter Units developed under Kier’s Trade City brand.

Kier also developed over 450 residential units in conjunction with several other developers and transferred a 300 acre country park to the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.

On behalf of Essex County Council, Kier also constructed a relief road under a Design and Build Contract, which totalled c.7km in length and connected Waltham Abbey with Junction 26 of the M25.
