New Sports Facility for Royal Veterinary College

Scope of Work:

Mackin was contracted to deliver all groundwork services above and below ground for the RVC sports facility which incorporated the sports hall, dance studio, gym, climbing wall and changing facilities, as well as new parking and landscaping.

Description:

Excavations were carried out to create a substructure. We installed the foundation slab of reinforced concrete, laid all drainage for surface & foul water and constructed all external hard & soft landscaping. An artificial water feature was created using surface water harvested from site, excavated and lined with sandbags. Reinstatement works and resurfacing to finish the architectural look.

Challenges:

  • Working adjacent to a live functioning education facility which stayed open throughout the construction phases requiring Mackin to install site security measures to safeguard student health & safety.
  • Site excavation muck was reused and stored on site deliveries had to be co-ordinated around site restrictions.

Outcome:

  • Mackin delivered all aspects of the groundworks on time and with client pleased with the end product.
