The MountPark development was located on farmland between Bardon and Ellistown. There was a substantial clearance of trees and hedges, followed by the topsoil strip. As a result of the development, the site had a surplus quantity of topsoil of circa 25,000m3. This was exported from the site by our fleet of tipper lorries. Our engineering team established a base station to provide line and level control for our Trimble guided plant The cut and fill operation then ensued, in accordance with MountPark’s specification and validated by Crossfield Consulting. All of the geotechnical testing was managed and coordinated by our engineering team. The access road was completed first in preparation for Winvic’s ground workers. Unit 1 then followed, providing Amazon with another 1,000,000ft2 distribution facility. Unit 2 and the country park ponds then followed. Lime and cement stabilisation was employed in all areas apart from the access road and landscaping. This reduced the import of aggregate and ensured that no subsoil materials had to be exported from site.
Winvic were provided with a short programme for the completion of Amazon’s warehouse before Christmas 2016. Collins successfully delivered our works ahead of schedule and within budget. Following these works, we returned to undertake the earthworks for Unit 3.
