We can install on site access roads to suit the many different ground conditions that can be encountered, ranging from full depth construction, requiring geotextile and geogrid for added strength in poor ground, to minimum depth construction in good subsoil conditions.
A range of finishes can be supplied and laid, from standard tarmac to SMA, including both coloured and high friction surfacing, as well as block paving in either permeable or standard finish.
All roads can be to adoptable or non-adoptable standard as the Client requires.
We have experience of installing roads to new developments, as well as undertaking major highway works incorporating complex traffic light controlled junctions.
We undertake a very wide range of drainage activities. We install shallow plastic drainage to service all plot works but are equally capable of installing up to 1200mm diameter precast concrete pipes and up to 3000mm diameter x 6m deep pumping stations with all the associated ancillaries.
We also have experience of a range of storm water attenuation systems comprising cellular crate systems, precast concrete culverts, large diameter precast concrete and plastic pipes and precast concrete tanks.
Pipes can be installed using a variety of methods from traditional open cut techniques to the more technical auger bored or directional drilling methods.
All of our work is carried out to the relevant standards suitable for adoption by the local water authority if required.
Plotworks & Foundations
We are able to install a wide range of foundation options to suit any design. We can install standard strip, trench fill or raft foundations, as well as more specialist piled foundations with ground beams (either precast or cast in-situ)
At oversite level we have experience in both ground bearing and suspended slabs, in addition to beam and block or hollow core floors, and can offer a wide range of gas membranes, insulation options and screed / topping as required. We can also form reinforced concrete basements and superstructures for flats.
Reinforced Concrete Works
We have the expertise to be able to provide many different reinforced concrete (r.c.) structures. We are able to undertake basements, retaining walls, supporting columns and transfer slabs, as well as superstructure works as required. We can employ a plethora of formwork options to give the desired finish, complete with the necessary falsework to provide the support needed for any suspended concrete. Concrete can be powered using many different methods to suit the particular situation.
We have experience of installing a number of large S278 schemes on major roads throughout our operational area and these typically require significant realignment of the existing road. We are able to undertake the full spectrum of works necessary – kerb realignment, planning works, new service crossings, traffic light infrastructure, high quality tarmac surfacing and high specification anti-skid surfacing, all to local authority adoptable standards.
The external works on a project provide that finished look and are an important part for the overall feel of a development. We are able to install all external works to the highest of standards and can lay the full range of hard landscaping products – slabbing, block paving, tarmac, coloured surfacing, resin bonded and resin bound surfacing and many other decorative finishes. These can be applied to both private and adoptable areas as required by the Client.
