Mountsorrel and Lount, Leicestershire – New Household Waste Centres

Over an 18 month period both of these waste sites were built. Mountsorrel was a brand new site and Lount was an extension and re-development of the existing site.

Works involved everything from site soil strip, cut and fill earthworks, foundations, precast and in-situ concrete walls, drainage, yard concreting, kerbing, service installation, new welfare and office construction and tarmac surfacing. Both sites were a new strategy on waste handling/disposal and were completed ahead of schedule, allowing early customer use.

Ashbourne, Derbyshire – Foul Sewerage upgrade and Flood Alleviation

Installation of new sewerage system to prevent downstream flooding to the town of Ashbourne. Work involved construction of new on-line storage tank pipeline within Conservation Area land along with upgraded chambers and installation of throttle system to prevent flooding during heavy rain or prolonged downpours.

Pipe sizes ranged from 150 -1200mm and work was not allowed to start until Autumn due to ecological constraints.

The work was completed well ahead of schedule even though the weather was ‘doing its worst’. The pipeline became operational and even though the final reinstatement to the grazing land had to be completed the following spring.
