Following the emergence of new technologies and the consolidation of Pilkington’s activities over the past decade, 104 acres of the Cowley Hill Works were purchased by BXB Cowley Hill Ltd. In support of their outline planning application for 1100 homes DBR designed the site remedial strategy gaining EHO and EA approval in late 2020.
DBR delivered an all-risk enabling package of a former bus garage to facilitate The Grand Exchange residential development comprising 242 apartments as part of £770 million redevelopment of Bracknell centre.
The site had been disused for a number of years and collaboration between MCI, Halton Borough Council and Halton Housing Trust ensured that this important development could proceed. DBR provided a fixed price remediation and enabling scheme to deliver the site development platform and produce all required sub-soils from processed site won material.
DBR provided a fixed price remediation scheme to facilitate the development of 89 new houses and apartments on the former Park Royal site. The site formerly accommodated a haulage yard and historic waste tip impacted with significant growth of Japanese Knotweed. DBR completed all demolition and remedial works to deliver an engineered development platform, achieving full regulatory approval to programme.

The 3.3 hectare site is in the northern most part of the former Rhodia Chemical Works facility (also known as ‘Marchon’ and ‘Albright & Wilson’ Works) approximately 2km south of Whitehaven town centre. The site purchased by Story Homes had been proposed for residential development of 40No. low rise dwellings.
We worked successfully with DB Remediation on the remediation and grubbing up of the former Bus Depot in Bracknell, Buckinghamshire. The project was particularly complex due to the site location and key project stakeholders, such as Network Rail and the Local Planning Authority. However, as a key member of the project team, Dafydd engaged with the team and provided the necessary professional support to ensure the enabling works package was a success. The proactive, collaborative and flexible approach that the team at DB Remediation employ is unique and has brought a refreshing outlook to the challenging environment of brownfield remediation.
