Case Study - Crest Nicholson, C208 Greyhound, Stadium Hinckley

  • Housing

The new housing development of 84 houses on Nutts Lane in Hinckley for Crest Nicholson, worth £1.6 m, is scheduled to finish in December 2013.  


The project has consisted of a storm drainage system incorporating a lagoon, where existing water levels were an issue and had to be dealt with at an early stage. The looped road layout was paramount to the project’s success and its early construction, incorporating the drainage system, enabled the safe and environmentally friendly working environment, Crest required. This has enabled the success of the project both for Crest and us, in a challenging market.
