The Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence (CEME) is a stunning world-class research, business support, skills and education campus located in East London with a focus on supporting the engineering, manufacturing and technology sectors. This imposing building is on the site of a 6 ha former landfill, associated with the Ford Motor Company in Dagenham.
The CEME Campus is situated on the A13 in Rainham, close to both Canary Wharf and the M25. Part of a £400m regeneration programme in East London, CEME was established to provide skills, create jobs and businesses that are revitalising London’s industrial heartland.
CEME is a UK registered charity and part of the London Thames Gateway Regeneration Scheme working in collaboration with public and private sector partners. CampbellReith provided the full range of engineering services for the redevelopment and played a key role in combining the client vision, architectural ambition and engineering delivery.
We managed the remediation of the site, removing contaminant hotspots and completing ex-situ soils remediation. CampbellReith’s geotechnical services incorporated the design and engineering of extensive earthworks, soft retaining walls, engineered slopes and ground treatments
Transport modelling was used to produce a comprehensive Transport Assessment and Travel Plan for the new development. The civil and structural engineering elements included the design of all the new buildings, access roads, parking and the drainage networks.
