Building Information Modeling/ Virtual Design & Construction
This was a design and build contract for the Highways Agency to widen a stretch of the A2 from three to four lanes in each direction between Pepperhill and Cobham in Kent. Construction began at the start of 2007and concluded in 2009. The scheme proposals significantly improved the safety record of the current road layout and enhance the general environmental situation along the route.
Market segment: Roads
EnvironmentAt the planning stage, Skanska provided detailed information on all areas of the scheme, including environmental aspects, to help it obtain the required statutory approvals, before construction was started.
Benefits for the communityA 28 hectare linear park was created in an area where the old road alignment used to run. There is also provision for a cycle track. 34 percent of the value of project materials and services were purchased from companies based within 30 km of the project, and 64 percent within 80 km. A local Gravesend company was contracted to undertake the structural concrete and reinforcement work and all trees and shrubs were sourced from a local nursery.
