BLU-3 WINS SOUTHEND AIRPORT PROJECT
Specialist infrastructure provider, blu-3, has been awarded the utilities package for the new Southend Airport Business Park development.
The company has been appointed to work on the project with the support from specialist supply chain partners, R&D Ltd, which will support on cable testing and Water Hygiene Solutions Ltd who will assist on water pressure and chlorination testing of the mains once installed.
The project forms part of the delivery of a new business park to support the continued growth of London Southend Airport as a key economic asset and address the current lack of availability of high-quality employment land and premises in the area.
blu-3 Contract Director, Mark Wilson, said: “blu-3 has been involved in the development of this project for over two years, so the success of this tender is welcomed by the company and all individuals involved.
The project is currently one of the biggest for the blu-3 multi-utilities team and we look forward to building on our great working relationship with the client as the project moves forward.”
Works are scheduled to start in May and will take seven months to complete.
The first phase of the project will involve the installation of temporary electrics and telecommunications followed by permanent gas and water supplies to a newly built rugby clubhouse, which is situated on the new site. The second stage will be the installation of permanent utility supplies to the site for the broader development and its future tenants.
The final stage will consist of reinforcement works that are required to ensure adequate utility supply to the site for further developments planned. blu-3 will also install lighting columns and street lighting.
