The construction programme commenced in May 2011 and was successfully handed over in July 2013.

Praise from our stakeholders

"I have worked with Howard Civil Engineering on a previous project where I found them to be diligent and efficient with Health & Safety, which is important to Balfour Beatty and is always at the forefront of all operations. They have again excelled in all areas and I look forward to our next project."
