The Challenge

Building on previous work with housing developer Hope Homes on the Knockroon Project for the Prince of Wales Trust, the Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust are completing phase 1 of the development. To do so a number of approvals and elements require to be realigned with current developments and subsequent agreements. The frontage road design aspects of Auchinleck Road require to be completed and an update to the previously consented drainage discharge strategy required to be agreed. SYSTRA have been appointed to liaise with Scottish Water and East Ayrshire Council to agree and obtain approvals in order for the first phase to be completed.

SYSTRA's Role

SYSTRA were involved from the feasibility stage through to detailed design and support during the construction of the initial streets of the Knockroon Development. In order to fit in with the construction phasing, aspects of the drainage strategy now require to be amended and SYSTRA have been appointed to design and gain detailed technical approval from Scottish Water. In addition to the drainage alterations, the road frontage onto Auchinleck Road is being finalised on site and as such some minor amendments are to be agreed and approvals gained from East Ayrshire Council.
