Groundworks & Frame for Additional Building

Description:

We carried out initial enabling works. Site clearance, breakout and compacting of car park/carriageway/upper level area. Installed concrete frame and columns up to 1st floor. Poured a concrete slab on first floor. We also completed drainage works across site.

Returned to site once construction was complete to install concrete stairs and gabian basket wall. Resurfaced carriageway/upper level. Carried our surfacing works and line marking for car park. Installed concrete base for lift base to incorporate disability access.

Challenges:

  • Live site – School
  • Heras fencing,
  • Well segregated area,
  • Close planning with the client,
  • Programmed works to coincide with school holidays when possible.

Height restrictions:

  • Bridge installed during the progress of the project,
  • Changed plant to accommodate height restrictions.

Access on site:

  • Phasing, access issues – We had to wheelbarrow materials and use a hi-ab to bring materials to upper floor.

Access off site:

  • Small road access in residential area,
  • Had to manage and plan deliveries to a higher level than usual.
