BAM Nuttall awarded Nine Elms regeneration contract
Camberley, 29 May 2015 - BAM Nuttall is pleased to announce the recent project award by the Royal Mail Group to undertake the remediation of its former mail centre site at Nine Elms in South London. The site has been used by Royal Mail since the 1970’s and prior to that the 4.2ha site was part of the Nine Elms Gas Works, which was built in the latter part of the 19th century.
Work will commence in June to start regenerating the area by carrying out site clearance, demolition, utility diversions, bulk earthworks, and remediation including onsite soil and water treatment. The site, which is currently being marketed by Royal Mail, will be prepared for the proposed development of up to 1870 residential units, a new primary school and over 6 acres of public space. Royal Mail secured planning permission from Wandsworth Council in March 2012 for this scheme.
This exciting project is a notable addition to BAM Nuttall’s portfolio of works in the urban regeneration sector, which has seen significant projects undertaken at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Kings Cross. These projects have transformed these brownfield sites in London and prepared them for future use for the benefit of local communities.
