Holiday Park Construction

Civil Engineering, Land Drainage and Attenuation

Farming entrepreneurs who set out to create a wedding destination jewel appointed CLS to design and complete a major infrastructure project under their £1.5m holiday lodge development. Before the accommodation could rise from the ground, significant infrastructure had to be put in place to ensure optimum functionality of the Great Ayton site, already billed as a staycation gem commanding landscape views of North York Moors national park.

Our broad spread of provision embraced initial earthmoving, installation of drainage, surface water management/attenuation, installation of utilities ducting and major civil engineering that included lodge foundation pads, access roads, footpaths, a roadway bridge and soft landscaping.

Run on a model of ecological sustainability, the completed Park gives guests ample opportunity to witness wildlife diversity up close and personal from their lodge and along miles of riverside walks. Yorkshire stone has been used throughout the site and more than 10,000 native trees were planted. Bird and bat boxes were also installed across and wildflower areas to attract pollinators.

Created from farmland the completed park now offers lodges for private use as well as short and long stay holiday lets in prestigious lodges, enjoying views across some of the most scenic countryside in Britain.

“We enjoyed a really close working relationship with CLS. They are experts in their field and know their business inside out. They adapted to our needs and were flexible in redesigning elements of infrastructure as the project progressed. A family business like ourselves, the Millers work on the ground and are involved with every aspect of a project, ensuring a close partnership throughout.”
