Client’s Requirements
After winning this much sort after contract to provide a high specification build Hobson & Porter were looking for a trusted sub-contractor with the ability of providing a high quality finish concerning the external works.

Yorkshire Groundworks worked closely with the site management team to deliver to a client who demanded a very high standard of works. The site is situated near to the river Derwent & posed many problems when constructing the drainage due to the height of the water table but our experience meant this was not a major problem.

Yorkshire Groundworks Contribution
Our Groundworks package included:-

  • Foundations – Excavations & preparation of shutters then visqueen & steel mesh for concrete raft foundation. Pouring & finishing over 300m3 concrete for the foundation.

  • Drainage – Excavations for & laying from 100mm to 150mm plastic drainage around site including excavation & construction of numerous large soakaway pits using Aquacell® baskets & excavation & installation of 2 large FW slurry tanks.

  • Externals – Building sound hardcore base & paving high quality York stone & reclaimed stone to the very high finish standards set down by the client around site with our operatives receiving very positive praise from the main client directly. Also works to form up a hardcore base for a new access road using a plastic honeycomb system combined with compacted stone.

Building the Future
By working closely with the Hobson & Porter site management team we were able to work together to achieve their clients goal of a bespoke new construction with a high level quality finish. “Completed all the sub-contract works to programme and to the high standards demanded, in my opinion excellent.” Dave Taylor, Site manager Hobson & Porter
