RJD Associates (North West) Limited have been appointed as Principal Designer and Client CDM Advisor on a residential development project that involves demolishing the former Kensington Market building, clearing the site and then constructing 2no three-storey blocks containing 54no 2-bed residential apartments together with 30no residential dwellings, including all associated enabling, infrastructure and external works.

The site is located to the south of the A57 Prescot Road between Lister Road and Lockerby Road at approximate OS grid reference SJ 37501 91059, covering an overall area of approximately 0.927 hectares, and prior to construction work commencing comprised the derelict three storey former Market building that partially fronted the boundary with Prescot Road along with an area of scrub land that is adjoining by Lockerby Road to the east and Lister Road to the west.

Key health and safety considerations on this project include managing the overlap and associated interfaces between the construction site and adjacent occupied areas, temporary works, demolition works, contact with live services, fire safety, preventing unauthorized access to the construction site and traffic management. RJD Associates look forward to working alongside the project team to ensure a successful delivery of the scheme.
