The Ashdon Road Industrial Estate consisted of 14 buildings, either empty or housing a variety of industrial companies in addition to the Ridgeons Timber and Builders’ Merchant. MLM were appointed in a multi-discipline capacity by Turnstone in partnership with Ridgeons to demolish and remediate the site, re-profile the site in a cut and fill exercise, support the planning application for the outline permission for residential development, and to design the new Ridgeons Store.
