Taylor Woodrow has been awarded the £120m strategic infrastructure contract for Enfield Council’s £6bn Meridian Water regeneration scheme.
The new infrastructure will be the foundation for the construction of thousands of new homes, businesses, and communal spaces for the local Edmonton community.
It covers an extensive range of works including the naturalisation of Pymmes Brook, two new parks, bridges, footpaths, road and cycle links to be delivered over the next few years.
The main contract award follows on from the Pre-Construction Services Agreement (PCSA) three years ago which saw Taylor Woodrow develop a sustainable design and construction solution for the project and begin early engagement with key supply chain partners.
The Leader of Enfield Council, Cllr Nesil Caliskan said, “This is an important milestone for Enfield Council as Master Developer, working with our partners Taylor Woodrow, the new infrastructure will unlock Meridian Water’s future development parcels, paving the way to continue to build much needed homes, commercial and leisure facilities.”
Phil Skegg, Managing Director of Taylor Woodrow said, “We are delighted to support Enfield Council in this transformational project.
“Central to our role is creating a legacy for the community by focussing on local skills and employment, whilst ensuring that we protect and enhance the environment throughout construction and in preparation for the whole lifecycle of the development.”
