B4RN’s Streetworks Project Manager, Elaine Elrick, said: “This a milestone for the first B4RN Village project and [our contractor] and his team have done a superb job throughout.”

This was the first job for our ‘B4RN Village’ build programme and took just 10 months. The team move on to help with our second project of this kind, in Levens.

B4RN use a narrow trenching, 100mm, dig model along the pavements and roads – dropping a Toby Box outside each property.

All works are carried out within approved planning and streetworks applications. Pedestrian & property access is always considered and diversions of the existing pathway around the construction works applied where necessary.
