Maylim Ltd successfully achieved practical completion of the Fish Hill Square Regeneration works on 23 September 2011 exactly 12 weeks after commencement.
This contract is the first with new client North Hertfordshire District Council; however it continues Maylim’s strong relationship with landscape architects, BDP. Both the Council and their designers have expressed their delight with Maylim’s continued examples of the highest standard of workmanship and on site management which has resulted in the scheme being successfully delivered in accordance with the design, programme and budget.
The Works included the installation of an attenuation tank required as a flood defence mechanism for surface water runoff in the area. Granite paving provides a strong and aesthetically pleasing finish to the square whilst various street furniture and architectural lighting put the finishing touches to a fantastic scheme. Six new trees were planted at the beginning of November to coincide with the planting season adding floral finishes to the project. Finally, Maylim Limited undertook the design development, manufacture and installation of a new sculpture to embrace Royston’s rich archaeological heritage. The concept for this sculpture came from a design competition ran in the local Meridian School.
At the official opening of the square on 19 November 2011 Cllr Tom Brindley of NHDC stated: “Clearly it’s great news that the work has been completed on time and on budget, and I look forward to seeing this lead to further investment in the town.”
Once again, Maylim Limited wishes to thank the local people and businesses of Royston for their patience and support while the work was completed.
