SuDS Permeable Paving - Crane Hardstandings, Truckcell, Wadlow Wind Farm, Cambridgshire, UK

ABG creative geosynthetic engineering

In Line with Cambridge County Councils renewable Energy Development Programme. RES received consent to build the 13 turbine Wadlow Wind Farm. The site is in a sensitive ecological and archaeological location. It therefore meant the crane hard standings had to be sympathetic to the local environment without compromising the minimum bearing capacity of 200kpa. ABG Truckcell Porous Plastic Paving System was chosen. This was supported by a free draining sub base and seeded with an indigenous seed mix to blend with the local environment. Due to the rapid installation, grassed appearance and load bearing abilities Truckcell ticked all the boxes.

Iraq, Afghanistan & Gulf War Memorial - Portland Stone


The memorial to the dead in the Iraq, Afghanistan and Gulf conflicts was produced in Jordans Basebed Portland Stone and is composed of 10 blocks, the largest of which weighed 7000kg each. In fact they were so heavy that stoneCIRCLE's lifting equipment could not cope with them and we had to buy in a 15 tonne crane to help with the job. The crane now makes life much easier for the team that unloads the delivery lorries. The stone is smooth and lettered on the back and front but rough hewn on the other 2 sides.

Nelson Project, Plymouth

H+H UK Ltd

Celcon Blocks were specified on a 24-unit social housing development in Plymouth.

This was overcome by H+H visiting site, working closely with them and delivering via Draw Bar vehicle with a crane. U-Value 0.14W/m2K .

Double Leaf Roof Hatch - National Oilwell Varco

Surespan Ltd

Staff at National Oilwell Varco were unable to build tall manifold assemblies due to the restricted height of their factory. The only solution was for Surespan to open up the roof on a temporary basis. Surespan manufactured a 4000 x 4300mm double leaf roof hatch which enabled an external crane to lift the manifold units in through the roof. The electrically operated hatch opens in an automated sequence, controlled by a small PLC and activated by the turn of a key. It was specially designed to open and stay open utilising strut locking to withstand agreed wind conditions.

Waitrose Solihull Car Park

3,500m2 of mastic asphalt was laid by BriggsAmasco’s City and Guild-trained installers onto the car park’s concrete decks. Up to 54-tonnes of asphalt was being utilised per day on machine-laid areas of roof, which required expert project management to ensure a steady supply of material was maintained. During one particularly complex operation, contractors were required to close sections of the car park in order to crane ready-to-apply tanks of mastic asphalt onto the roof. This required coordinated planning with the client and local authorities to minimise the public health and safety risk.

Overheating library is no sweat for Dearnleys

Astralux Blind System

Visitors to Horsforth Library in Leeds were having difficulty using the computers due to too much glare. In addition, in the summer the solar gain through the roof glazing was making the library uncomfortably hot. Dearnleys proposed the Astralux 6000 louvre blind system which is ideal for sloping glazing as the slats are securely held on rack arms. These arms allow the slats to be tilted to control light and glare. At this site the blinds were operated by a detachable crank handle but motorisation is also available.
