Cardiff Housing Partnership Programme

Client: Wates Living Space / Cardiff City Council

Sector: Residential

Value: £33M

The Cardiff Housing Partnership Programme is considered to be Cardiff City’s flagship programme for delivering 1500 new residential units on Greenfield and Brownfield sites located across the City. Cambria are an integral part of Wates’ Design Team tasked with designing the Civil, Structural, Highway and Environmental Engineering works.

Phase 1 is now underway which involves delivering a mix of residential apartment blocks and housing units on 11No. Separate sites designed for both rental and open market sales.  Phases 2 and 3 of the project will follow on from the initial Phase 1 works which in total aim to deliver to Cardiff some 1500 new units.

The design of the site infrastructure works incorporate the most appropriate of the available SuDS techniques including soakaways where percolation rates allow, an attenuation pond for the Willowbrook site, swales for the Broughton and Clevedon sites and below ground attenuation tanks where alternatives are not feasible.  All new roads will generally be to adoptable standards as will the surface and foul drainage systems serving the sites.
