Clearing Concorde’s Engine Development Site

One of our favourite things about our jobs is the diversity of sites which we get to work on.

We were asked to assist in clearing a site that since 1946 had been home to the National Gas Turbine Testing establishment where Concorde’s jet engines were developed! Owned by the Ministry of Defence, the site was decommissioned in 2000 but there is still plenty of evidence of the days of testing those mighty jet engines! Now being developed by @berkeleygroupplc, Hartland Village, looks set to become a wonderful new community surrounded by rich natural woodland and embedded with an interesting history!

We cleared the site of all soft vegetation to allow access for the next phases of development using a flail and forestry mulcher. We have also undertaken works in the surrounding areas, felling trees that posed a risk to passing pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and clearing vegetation that surrounds waterworks which require future inspection.

We look forward to returning in the future to see the completed project!
