Background

Houses are now being sold on Persimmon Homes Yorkshire’s latest development, in Wilberfoss, providing a selection of two, three and four bedroom homes.

This was our first project for Persimmon Homes, installing the sewers and main carriageways for this new development of 44 plots.

The site investigation belied the actual site conditions which had deteriorated considerably through the wet winter. A high water table and running sands were overcome through the installation of a dewatering system to progress the works.
Through proactively overcoming the unforeseen ground conditions, Howards were able to keep the affect of the poor ground conditions on the programme to a minimum.
