Part of Fradley Park

Engineering consultancy JPG Group has been selected by Evans Property Group to oversee the next phase of development at Fradley Park in Lichfield.

Evans recently obtained planning permission to construct two warehouse units totaling more than 280,000 sq ft within the 300-acre industrial and distribution park.

Following the firms role in guiding Evans through the planning process, JPG Group is now providing civil and structural engineering support in collaboration with GMI Construction for the construction of the two units.

This includes re-routing a Severn Trent surface water sewer and creating a large flood compensatory storage area to the south of the site as part of the flood risk management strategy.

Chris Harding, managing director at JPG Group said: “We are delighted to be appointed on this next significant phase of development at Fradley Park.  JPG has advised on development plans spanning more than 20 years at Fradley Park and so we are very familiar with the site and its geospatial data. Indeed, we are retained across much of Evans portfolio as a trusted, long term advisory partner.”

“The instruction also supports our growing base in the Midlands where we established a more permanent base at the start of the year.  Our central Birmingham office is expanding with a range of instruction across strategic residential, logistics and retail instructions.”

Marc Banks, director at Evans Property Group said: “This is another major milestone on our ongoing journey at Fradley Park, it demonstrates our commitment and confidence in the site and the marketplace. We are delighted to once again be working closely with JPG as our engineering partner on the project”
