Willowbrook Construction played an important role in completing the substructures and drainage works on site. This included offsite foul pumping stations and rising mains, concrete and steel driven piles together with reinforced pile caps, in-situ ground beams, lift and escalator pits, and reinforced substructure works for the children’s wet play area located within the existing lake.
