M-EC Appointed to Trio of Local Authority Projects

M-EC, a leading firm of technical development consultants has been appointed to provide expert advice on a trio of local authority infrastructure projects in Leicestershire.

The projects involve three of the company’s specialist departments.

The firm has been engaged by North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) and Leicestershire County Council (LCC) to carry out a range of surveys and impact assessments for projects taking place in Coalville and Ashby de-la-Zouch.

In Coalville, M-EC is working with NWLDC and other specialists on the £1.5m Marlborough Square to ensure the success of the redevelopment project in the heart of the historic market town. The redesigned square is intended to provide a more attractive, pedestrian friendly public space suitable for families and for events and markets. The regeneration will complement the adjacent newly refurbished Coalville indoor market. 

The new designs for the square necessitate the redirection of traffic around the town centre. M-EC’s specialist transport team has provided pre-planning highway and transport support for the project.  The team has also created a road sign and lining design scheme in support of a future Section 278 application to undertake the works within the public highway. 

Also in Coalville, M-EC have been working on a residential scheme on Highfield Street on behalf of NWLDC and LCC.  M-EC’s GI, Geomatics, Civils, Structures and Lighting teams have all been involved in this project in order to progress on site construction and technical approvals from the relevant statutory authorities.   

Working with Ashby-de-la-Zouch Town Council, M-EC’s Acoustic Air team has been commissioned to undertake Air Quality Monitoring to review the level of road traffic emissions within the Town.  Continuous 12-month monitoring of Nitrogen Dioxide has been undertaken and the findings of this will be reported back to the Town Council. 

Tim Rose, Director at M-EC comments:

“As a Leicestershire headquartered, we are pleased to be working closely with several local authorities across the county on projects which will improve the lives of Leicestershire residents. The Marlborough Square development in Coalville in particular has been long awaited and the improvements to the town centre will have a positive impact on the local economy, encouraging further investment in the area and reducing pollution levels.”
