Howard Civil Engineering is delivering a £2m groundworks package on the initial phase of Leeds City Council’s General Needs Housing scheme for our longstanding client, Wates Group.

Due to significant topographical challenges on this site, intense planning and coordination was required to ensure the works are delivered safety and efficiently. This includes the installation of a precast concrete culvert almost 6m deep in the adopted highway to provide an attenuation solution.
