Airfield Farm, Market Harborough

Our Chairman, John Breheny recently attended the official opening of the new road and bridge constructed by Breheny Civil Engineering at Airfield Farm, Market Harborough.

This design and construct scheme on the edge of Market Harborough, adjacent to the Grand Union Canal included construction of a new S278 junction, a road bridge over the Canal, foul and surface water sewers and on site roads.

The earthworks comprised 150,000m3 of cut/fill to form new structural embankments, ponds and flood attenuation works. We managed the Archaeological works, which involved both a watching brief and strip and map elements. A section of contaminated land within our site was remediated and subsequently reincorporated back into the works, reviewed and approved by the Environment Agency.

The drainage works at Airfield Farm included the diversion of existing flood drainage pipes, installation of site storm and foul water systems and the construction of four 2400mm diameter emergency flood spillway structures (incorporated in the event of a canal breach).

We also managed the diversion of existing water, gas, HV, LV and BT services. In addition we co-ordinated the design and installation of the new incoming site services.
