Chelmer Waterside


Chelmer Waterside is a major residential development built on part of a former gasworks site and a gas refining plant, situated on a peninsula surrounded by the River Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation Canal.

The development comprises 420 homes as apartment blocks and low rise housing, with areas of landscaped open space and associated infrastructure.

Previous phases of ground investigation had found concrete foundations and the presence of typical gasworks contamination and waste across the site.

Supplementary ground investigation was undertaken across the site to assist with foundation design and confirm risks to controlled waters and human health. A remediation strategy was designed to take into account the infrastructure and remediation requirements.
