This development was completed to provide Rhenus, a logistics specialist, with a new 1 million square foot development consisting of 2 sustainable logistics warehouses in the West Midlands, just 5 miles away from Junction 3 of the M6. The initial ground investigations completed identified a significant amount of rock within the site, which meant that we had to mobilise large 75 tonne excavators within our fleet on site in order to excavate the material as efficiently as possible.
We then had to mobilise one of our experienced crushing teams to process the material into a suitable size to be reused on-site as fill material. This negated having to dispose of the rock off-site and allowed us to utilise the material on-site once processed. Furthermore; through the use of cement stabilisation, we provided our client with a value-engineered cost saving.
By adopting this process we managed to reduce the amount of aggregates that were imported for use as sub-base and significantly reduced the environmental impact that the project had, which helped the project to achieve a BREEAM outstanding rating.
