VAC UK is helping to deliver groundworks at Wanborough, Swindon as part of the massive New Eastern Villages project.

Promoted by Swindon Borough Council, it is one of the largest developments in the UK and will consist of 8,000 homes, new schools, employment spaces and community and leisure facilities.

VAC UK is operating alongside trenchless specialists to install a new rising main as part of groundworks for the latest phase of development at Redlands Farm. The pipework is being installed in 100m lengths with the vac ex being used to remove spoil and water from the launch and reception pits.

Vistry Group (Linden Homes) and Bellway Homes are building up to 370 homes at the site.
