Muston Road

In this infrastructure project Sirius undertook the detailed design, approvals and installation of the highways and drains for a 300 home residential development on a greenfield site on the outskirts of Filey. Roads and drains totalling 8km in length were installed by Sirius and, by continuous value engineering; we were able to deliver substantial savings for the client by eliminating a rising main sewer.

Client Name: Coast & Country Housing



Project Description

This project involved the design and construction of the site infrastructure for a new development of 300 new homes on a greenfield site in Filey, North Yorkshire. Our Infrastructure team completed the detailed design and approvals process for this scheme, including Section 38, 104 and 278 works.

Sirius then moved onto the construction phase of the project, laying more than 2.7km of roads and installing over 5.4km of surface water and foul drains. Four hundred metres of the drainage system was comprised of 2.4m diameter concrete pipe sections, which acts a part of a surge prevention system. Such large section pipework calls for the highest standards of health and safety during their installation and we are pleased to report there were no incidents during these works.


By integrating the detailed design and build phases of this project, Sirius was able to bring both technical and practical innovation to the scheme, managing cost and programme risks for all parties. Value engineering by Sirius during the project enabled an originally proposed rising main sewer and associated pumping facility to be eliminated altogether, saving both capital and revenue costs.
