Job Details: Supply and installation of a stockpile cover system on outside stored fill material
Date: April 2021
Site won fill material is a valuable asset for housing developers.
By utilising site won fill material, developers cut out the cost of removal and import of fill materials which brings very significant commercial advantages as well as the obvious carbon benefits by removing truck movements.
Such is the commercial and operational value of site won fill material, more and more developers are looking to protect this outside stored asset from the effects of rain water.
With the British climate remaining consistently inconsistent, rainfall has become a real enemy of good quality site won fill material! When fill material becomes too wet, it can be rendered unusable and at the very least it becomes an operational nightmare to work with!
By implementing our stockpile cover system, Redrow Homes protected their site won materials, which they valued at £400 000, from the effects of rainfall and ensure the material remains in pristine condition no matter how long the materials remains insitu prior to use.
5000m2 of our Cover Up 400 and our Net Down ballast system were supplied in pile specific sized pre-welded panels, 4 panels of each.
The materials were installed on site within one working day.
Testimonial: Testimonial: David Stimpson, Plasdwr Infrastructure Manager – Redrow
We found HBB to be very user friendly and efficient to work with, and we were delighted to see the cover system installed quickly to protect the valuable fill material.
HBB co-ordinated their activities with our site team to ensure that the installation process ran smoothly, and also completed a final inspection of the completed works before departing from site on the following day.
One aspect of the cover system that is particularly appealing to us, is the ability to adapt it to accommodate further fill material as it is generated during the installation of future infrastructure works at Plasdwr. This flexibility is very important to us, as it allows us to plan large earthworks movements in an economic and sustainable way, whilst also minimising the environmental impact on adjacent communities due to reduced disposal and import operations.
