The £120 million infrastructure contract awarded to Taylor Woodrow marks a significant step in the development of Enfield Council's £6 billion Meridian Water regeneration scheme. This new infrastructure will serve as the backbone for the creation of residences, businesses, and communal areas for the local Edmonton community.
The work encompasses several initiatives, including the restoration of Pymmes Brook, the establishment of two new parks, and the construction of bridges, footpaths, and road and cycle links to be delivered over the next few years.
This major contract follows a Pre-Construction Services Agreement (PCSA) formed three years ago, during which Taylor Woodrow created an eco-friendly design and construction approach for the project, initiating early collaboration with key suppliers.
Enfield Council's Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, commented on the scheme saying: "This is an important milestone for Enfield Council as Master Developer, working with our partners Taylor Woodrow, the new infrastructure will unlock Meridian Water’s future development parcels, paving the way to continue to build much-needed homes, commercial and leisure facilities.”
Phil Skegg, Managing Director of Taylor Woodrow said: "We are delighted to support Enfield Council in this transformational project.
“Central to our role is creating a legacy for the community by focusing on local skills and employment, whilst ensuring that we protect and enhance the environment throughout construction and in preparation for the whole lifecycle of the development.”
