Project Overview

Between 2009 and 2015 Dawnus delivered over £15m of civils and infrastructure works at The Works former steelworks regeneration site in Ebbw Vale.

This project involved provision of public realm and highways works. Works included: 

  • Car park construction
  • Demolition of Project Office (including asbestos removal)
  • Access and pedestrian routes
  • Utilities installation
  • Highway drainage
  • New kerbs, paving and hard landscaping
  • Landscaping including urban tree pits
  • Full highway construction
  • Surfacing
  • Road markings
  • Street lighting
  • Lit and unlit signage
  • Street furniture
  • Complex traffic/pedestrian management 

We proactively engaged with adjacent contractors and stakeholders to ensure interface between work packages ran smoothly and required accesses were maintained. This was achieved through constant site dialogue and formal weekly co-ordination meetings. 

On all projects at The Works we worked closely with the Council to maximise social and community benefits, including employment and training opportunities for local people, and opportunities for the local supply chain.
