As part of a regeneration programme to improve the Nar Valley Park area of King’s Lynn, a former factory site is being transformed into a residential estate by Lovell Partnerships and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk.
NORA 4 is the forth phase of development on the site and will consist of more than a hundred two and three bedroom homes.
In recent years the site was a wasteland and the ground was very unstable and contaminated.
Lovell Partnerships carried out lime stabilisation treatments which took several months, to allow the site to be constructed on.
Using a Junttan PM-16 piling rig we installed approximately 500 piles to depths of up to 18 metres before more than 2500 linear metres of Smartfoot Precast ground beams were laid.
The 20-week programme was tight, but careful planning and safe delivery helped the team deliver the foundations on schedule.
