Meridian Water

Mixed-use development on masterplan site with challenging constraints

Appointed by Countryside Partnerships, Walsh provided structural and civil engineering services to Phase 1 & 2 of Meridian Water which is part of a wider regeneration scheme providing new homes in Enfield.

Phase 1 is split into two phases, namely Phase 1A and 1B, and comprises six main blocks: Block A, B, C, D, E1 and E2. Phase 2 comprises four blocks A-D. Across all phases, the blocks range from three-storey townhouses to a 30-storey concrete frame tower. Walsh has delivered the structural and civil engineering design from planning support to completion on Phase 1A with early stage involvement on Phase 1B and delivery to construction on Phase 2.

In addition to new homes, Phase 1 provides retail and commercial spaces at ground level, landscaped podiums and a ‘meanwhile’ Skills Academy providing training for construction trades. A key consideration of the Civils design has been to deliver extensive public spaces which double-up as flood storage areas alongside naturalisation of the Pymmes Brook. Proposed as a discharge location, connection into the Brook will be established as part of the flood mitigation, renaturalisation and landscaping works.

Originally a brownfield site with challenging site constraints, such as existing Cadent gas mains, former gasholder structures and ground contamination, Walsh has collaborated with the architect, client and wider design team to overcome the constraints and produce a scheme that is economical, meets the client’s brief and encompasses architectural expression.
