‘The Movement’ is the name given to the redevelopment of the former Greenwich Industrial Estate, adjacent to Greenwich DLR and mainline station, and just a few minutes walk from Greenwich Town Centre. blu-3 were asked to get involved in this regeneration package by providing civil and utilities and off-site infra-structure works. Solutions to some of challenges incurred on the site included the installation of Sustainable drainage Systems, totalling in 252 cubic metres. These Systems are an alternative to the traditional approach of collecting stormwater in pipes and discharging into treatment works or watercourses. SUD’s limit the flow of rainwater which runs off a site or is piped away and reduces the likelihood of downstream flooding. As principal contractor blu-3 coordinated works with adjacent developers, utility companies and the close neighbours.
The Movement is recognised as a community engaging project and blu-3 recognised the importance of regular coordination meetings to ensure the project ran smoothly and safely whilst keeping the local community engaged in the project and listening and taking into account their views.
