Pride Park, a 50-acre commercial and industrial park, is one of the East Midland's premier locations for business and industry and has attracted considerable inward investment for Derby City. Originally the site was derelict industrial land that historically had been used by the rail, gas and aggregate industries. This meant that much of the site was heavily impacted by contamination and ground gases, and was landfill.

With the support of EMDC, Derby City Council formed a development agency to lead the regeneration. However a major break through for the redevelopment was the relocation to Pride Park of Derby County Football Club.

BWB Consulting assisted the club and the Council consider the environmental impact of various proposed locations for the Stadium and remediation solutions to mitigate the soil contamination. Subsequently we have provided a full range of integrated and environmental services to a variety of developers mostly notably Cedar House Investments, Prime Holdings and Commercial Developments Projects.

Key Challenges

BWB Consulting have helped the developers overcome many constraints set out within the framework of the Pride Park development strategy, in particular the residual ground contamination, containment walls, ground gas and settlement issues.

BWB has now supported the development of over 400,000 sq ft offices at Midland Place, Pride Place, Pride Point, Centro, Waterside Place, Patriot Way and Prospect Place together with 100,000 sq ft of industrial units.
