(Posted on 28/05/19)UCML were asked to provide its services for a brand-new residential development in Abergele for Macbryde Homes. Bron y Castell is located between the A547 and A55, situating the development conveniently close to Abergele’s business park. The project is under construction in 3 phases and UCML have been involved in coordinating and project managing utilities for the scheme’s entirety. In total, Bron y Castell compromises of 156 beautiful new dwellings. Bron y Castell features 2,3, and 4 bedroom homes for sale, with the help to buy Wales scheme available. After an initial review during phase 1, UCML found that an overhead 11kV high voltage electricity cable encroached the site. UCML procured quotations for diverting the cable, ensuring the most cost effective and time managed solution. The 11kV overhead cable was diverted underground, and 190m of overhead cable was removed. This enabled the project to continue in a timely manner without delaying the rest of the construction or affecting other phases in the development. Because the 11kV cable was in close proximity to the A55 trunk road, UCML liaised with the highway agency to schedule road closures, enabling the divisionary works to be undertaken safely.
