RJD Associates (North West) Limited have been appointed as CDM Principal Designer on a residential development project involving the construction of 16no three bedroom dwelling houses with associated external and infrastructure works. The dwellings will be two storey structures with trussed rafter pitched roofs over, that will be constructed in one block of 3no dwellings noted as Plots 1-3, one staggered block of 7no dwellings noted as Plots 4-10, and three pairs of semi-detached dwellings noted as Plots 11&12, 13&14 and 15&16. The scope of works includes site clearance and establishment works constructing a vehicular site entrance off Wordsworth Road, constructing a site access road and vehicular turning areas, constructing driveways and forming garden areas for each plot, forming hard and soft landscaped areas, constructing foul and surface water drainage systems and installing mains services.

The site is located at the junction of Wordsworth Road and Mancunian Way and in Denton, and comprises a plot of land that is currently being used as a car park with hard and soft landscaping areas within the site demise, which is approximately 0.34 hectares in size. Ground levels across the site are relatively flat, falling gradually to the west. Within the central section of the site is an area of rough ground that was formerly occupied by terraced houses, and the west section of the site is a hardstanding area that runs the full length of the site from north to south, which is the area being utilized for car parking.

Key health and safety considerations on this project include managing the overlap and associated interfaces between the construction site and adjacent residential properties, traffic management, temporary works, carrying out construction works adjacent to the existing boundary retaining wall to the west of the site demise and preventing unauthorised access to the construction site. RJD Associates look forward to working alongside the project team to ensure a successful delivery of the scheme.
