Land Remediation – Manchester

The LK Group assisted Cruden Construction on their tender for the construction of a new 150,000 sqft warehouse in East Manchester. The site was contaminated, which is typical of this area of the city however, the main challenge was the geotechnical quality of the existing site due to its previous use.

Outcome

THE SOLUTION

Following volumetric calculations, we determined that we could accommodate the majority of the contamination on site, while recovering the relic foundation solutions of pads and ground beams to take place. The relic foundations were then used to re- engineer the ground and provide a construction platform.

THE BENEFIT

Our pre tender discussions, design and volumetric calculations allowed our client to put forward an alternative foundation solution which considerably improved their tender figure.
