The renowned former MG Rover manufacturing site is being redeveloped into a vibrant mixed-use town centre, with Rodgers Leask contracted to provide civil, structural and geo-environmental consultancy.

Environmental engineering
Comprehensive desk studies, intrusive works, and site reclamation and remediation strategies for individual plots throughout the site.

Civil engineering
Designs for large earthwork operations, roads and plot access, along with drainage and watercourse diversions. Structural engineering Designs have included a high-rise hotel, 100,000ft2 superstore with basement parking, office block, multi-storey parking facilities and large-scale retail units.

Adding value
This was a complicated redevelopment of a brownfield site that required careful consideration of above and below ground contaminants, as well as underground structures including an old hospital, wartime bunker and extensive tunnel network. As the client’s retained engineers, our teams oversaw all civil and structural engineering designs from concept and planning through to construction and handover.
