Client’s Requirements
Clugston Construction Ltd required a reliable sub-contractor to carry out a groundworks package on a Gas Terminal in Aldbrough, East Yorkshire. Due to the nature of the works (on a live gas terminal) we had to adhere to very stringent health & safety and security rules, these included specialist PPE including the wearing of fire-proof overalls & gas detectors at all times. The project was to construct a maintenance shed with external hardstanding areas including associated drainage & underground services.

The project suffered early on due to there being more existing foundations to break out than previously anticipated. By being flexible and applying a higher resource we were able to bring the project back round to meet programme.

Yorkshire Groundworks Contribution
Our Groundworks package included:-

  • Foundations – Removing existing foundations, then excavating for & installation of the new reinforced concrete raft foundation
  • Drainage – 250m+ of below ground drainage for foul & surface including the installation of 40m3 stormwater attenuation tank & pumping station
  • Services – 230m of underground services installed for data & power supplies across site
  • Externals – 1500m2 of reinforced concrete hardstanding to yard areas including 250m of kerbs laid around site

Project Outcome
Our package was completed ahead of programme in the end with a certificate being issued from our client & the employer to award us for completing 16,000 man hours worked without any accidents (attached). Unfortunately due to the stringent security on site photographs were not permitted to be taken so we do not have any images of the works.
