Weaver Square

Weaver Square, Northwich

Ground investigations to establish the site constraints and cost impact prior to the construction of a residential redevelopment.

Mixed Use Regeneration - North West

Project Overview

The site extends to circa 4.73 acres and is located in Northwich Town Centre. The site is a major regeneration opportunity with an aspiration to provide predominantly residential lead redevelopment.

The purpose of the ground investigations was to establish the site constraints and the subsequent cost impact of these. In particular, it was a key priority of Cheshire West & Chester Council for the quantification of risk in relation to future subsidence given the brine mining history of the local area.
