The project was awarded on a ‘Consult and Construct’ basis with JLES completing all outstanding works as; Main Contractor, Managing Agent and Technical Consultant. The scheme had been built in the previous year and required completion to satisfy the residents and adopting authorities. Prior to the commencement of the works, detailed liaison and investigation works were required to determine Worcestershire County Council's requirements for adoption.

The scheme involved:
  • • Completion of binder course replacement & final surfacing throughout as well as general S38 remedials

  • • Remedial works to BT box/ducts to obtain developer rebate

  • • Adopting Authority liaison

Due to the development only having one point of access and egress, extensive resident liaisons were required to ensure the binder course and final surfacing were completed with minimum disruption.


"We appointed JLES on a fixed fee basis to drive through the adoption of a difficult large scale legacy project. They managed the entirety of the road and sewer adoptions process on time, and to the satisfaction of both CALA and the adopting authorities, without any hidden additional costs."
