Great Denham Park is a consortium housing development with David Wilson Homes (DWH), the lead developer, building over 2,800 homes during a 12 year period.
Following an extensive landscape consultancy project working alongside DWH and their retained architects (Golby and Luck) TCL were appointed to deliver a multi-faceted £2.5m project creating play areas, sports facilities and a 150-acre country park including wetland areas.
idverde has been involved from the early planning stages of the development since 2009 and have had a key role in the extensive consultation with both DWH and Bedford Borough Council (BBC).
DWH selected idverde to support this project both as a trusted long term partner but also due to the level of experience of multi-year, multi-service projects of this magnitude. Our project team were then able to utilise their expert knowledge to seek cost efficiencies through value engineering various aspects of the project.
Through idverde’s integrated offering of a broad range of services, they were able to provide a service to DWH that helped deliver a more cost-effective overall solution, saving over £1.5m versus the original project budgets. Quality of installation was ensured using idverde’s own directly employed colleagues throughout the project.
Recognising the impact long term projects of this nature sometimes have on early occupancy residents, idverde has worked hard to ensure disruption is minimised. Many community initiatives, including tree planting workshops and play area openings, have created exceptional relationships with residents and helped deliver a development that DWH and occupants alike are proud of.
