The site, on Wetmore Road, Burton-upon-Trent, previously comprised an engineering works that manufactured components for the construction industry. It was underlain by a significant depth of made ground including a backfilled pond, river channel and gravel pit, and located on the flood plain of the nearby River Trent.

The project package included two phases of combined geo-environmental investigation, utilities and topographical surveys and flood risk assessment. A provisional phase of siteworks was carried out in 2010 while the engineering works was still operational, and a supplementary phase was carried out in 2012 following the closure, demolition and clearance of the engineering works.
