Client’s Requirements
Hobson Porter Ltd approached us to work on the prestigious new North Stand to Hull Kingston Rovers’s Craven Park stadium, they required a contractor to take on the sizeable groundworks package on a labour, plant & materials basis. They required a contractor who was flexible enough to deliver the contract in time for the upcoming Rugby League World Cup.

The project required us to work with the client & their numerous other sub-contractors in a flexible manner to keep to the main programme, the project required 5 visits to first assist with the site set up, then construct the foundations, then drainage & services & finally the externals. In between these activities the steel frame, precast concrete stand & internal works were mainly completed.

Yorkshire Groundworks Contribution
Our Groundworks package included:-

  • Foundations – 600m3 of reinforced pilecaps & groundbeams to the new stand & ancillary building using the corriform© formwork system
  • Drainage – 920m of underground drainage for foul & surface water including installation of hydrobrake manholes & 3 precast outlet swales into stormwater lagoons, also 200m of Channel Drainage to hardstanding areas
  • Services – 450m of underground services around site & 4 large foundations (3m deep) for new floodlight pylons around the pitch
  • Externals – 400m of kerbing to new car park areas & 1200m2 of high quality paving around the new stand & ancillary building

Project Outcome
The client was able to deliver the project in time to host the Rugby League World Cup Pool Games as planned, additionally we completed the works with only 1 kerb to replace as a snagging item over the course of this sizeable project.
