Ebbsfleet Garden City

Sykes continues to assist major residential development in Kent

Towards the back end of summer 2020, we reported our involvement with the £900m Ebbsfleet Garden City project – now expected to be completed by 2033.

With the help of Sykes Pumps, the lead contractor has made significant progress pumping out a lagoon that originally spanned dozens of acres on the site.

This huge body of water was split into three sections, and the first of which has already been emptied. At the time of writing, our 8” super silent pumps are transferring water from the middle section (pictured below) into the third section that sits next to it.

This location has already seen considerable changes following the creation and naming of the Whitecliffe village, but the presence of a large lagoon has hampered extensive infrastructural advancements.
