I&H Brown starts clearing


The civil engineering division of I&H Brown has won a major contract at one of the biggest community projects in the UK.

The project is the first for a new client, Winchburgh Developments, and calls for extensive site clearance, excavation of 52,000 cub. metres of topsoils and subsoils to create a platform for housing development, construction of new roads, footways and drainage and installation of services into the site. In addition, 15 boreholes will be grouted and a temporary shared access road constructed.

The master plan for the site, 14 miles west of Edinburgh, is for at least 3,450 homes, improved transport links, schools and new outdoor spaces.

Brown’s programme for phase 7A of the development is 30 weeks with a return visit next year for 10 weeks.
