Meridian Water, a £6 billion development in Edmonton, north London, will see the construction of 10,000 homes as well as new businesses and communal spaces over a 25-year programme, led by Enfield Council.    

In November, contractor Greater London Demolition finished demolition of The Drumsheds, old warehouses at Meridian Water, paving the way for the new infrastructure. 

The strategic infrastructure contract covers an extensive range of works including the naturalisation of Pymmes Brook, two new parks, bridges, footpaths, road and cycle links to be delivered by TW over the next few years.  

The award follows a pre-construction services agreement (PCSA) which saw the contractor develop a sustainable design and construction solution for the major project and begin early engagement with key supply chain partners. 

Phil Skegg, managing director of Taylor Woodrow, said: “We are delighted to support Enfield Council in this transformational project. Central to our role is creating a legacy for the community by focussing on local skills and employment, whilst ensuring that we protect and enhance the environment throughout construction and in preparation for the whole lifecycle of the development.” 

Councillor Nesil Caliskan, leader of Enfield Council, added: “This is an important milestone for Enfield Council as master developer, working with our partners Taylor Woodrow, the new infrastructure will unlock Meridian Water’s future development parcels, paving the way to continue to build much needed homes, commercial and leisure facilities. Naturalising the currently channelised Pymmes Brook to introduce a river landscape that will provide riverside parkland and new public spaces for the community. Building new infrastructure in Edmonton is one of the many ways we are investing in the borough of Enfield.”
