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.

Outdoor Power Clusters For AB Ports

IDE Systems

Ports in Newport, Swansea and Cardiff required redevelopment work to bring their electrical infrastructure up to date with modern quality standards. Due to the original connection points being built in the 1960s, the years had not been kind to the structure and electrical condition of the boxes. IDE were pivotal in upgrading the existing electrical infrastructure to allow for cranes to connect safely and efficiently to a reliable mains power supply. Read more within the case study attached.

Briggs Amasco Ltd

These two roof complexes form a large and prestigious part of Westfield’s new shopping centre on the edge of the 2012 Olympic Park. Both areas were weathered with an inverted Mastic Asphalt system with a wide range of finishes including both green & brown roof coverings. The material was delivered directly to site in thermostatically controlled hot charge vehicles. The asphalt was lifted to roof level in luggars by our cranes, before being applied by BriggsAmasco directly employed labour.

Biomass Access Cover - Lithuania

Biomass Access Cover - Lithuania

Surespan

Surespan recently travelled to Lithuania to manufacture and supply a floor hatch to enable Finnish energy company Fortum to access their biomass pit at their new energy plant. The 5000 x 5000 mm hydraulically operated, double leaf hatch was designed to be easily operated by an electrically driven pump power pack. Fortum wanted the simplest operation for a grab crane to gain easy access to the biomass plant so Surespan worked with engineering consultants AF Consult to come up with an effective solution.
Nelson Project, Plymouth

Nelson Project, Plymouth

H+H UK Ltd

Celcon Blocks were specified on a 24-unit social housing development in Plymouth. H+H was chosen due to the lightweight properties and ease of use as half of the units were constructed by veterans, many of whom had never worked on a construction site. The site was particularly challenging, with change in levels of 2.5 metres. The physical constraints of the site meant that standard articulated delivery vehicles could not be used. 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 .

Waitrose Solihull Car Park

Waitrose Solihull Car Park

Briggs Amasco Ltd

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.
70 ST MARY AXE (Can of Ham)

70 ST MARY AXE (Can of Ham)

Ambar Kelly Ltd

Mace Group purchased the units directly and free-issued them to the steel frame contractor, VBH JV (a joint venture ofHollandia and Victor Buyck). Some of the units were 7m x 1.5m wide which Ambar Kelly designed to incorporate horizontal fire protection and drylined fire walls as part of the RiserSafe® system. This allowed for a group of shafts, or openings, to be combined into one unit, which reduced the number of trimmer steels and concrete beams required for walls, thereby reducing crane lifts and construction time.

Basement waterproofing at Ardley Energy from Waste Plant

Basement waterproofing at Ardley Energy from Waste Plant

Fosroc International Limited

The new Ardley EfW Plant, including a 12m basement built over an Artesian Well, presented a host of construction challenges. Due to the extreme water pressure created by the Artesian Well, as well as ammonium salts in the ground, Fosroc worked closely with Tata Projects specifying a solution using Proofex Engage to provide a watertight, chemically resistant barrier, with Supercast SW20 in the construction joints to reinforce the floor to wall joint. Fosroc provided a ‘total solution’ package to ensure Tata Projects could feel confident with the proposed specification, from basement waterproofing, to grouting crane bases, flooring and sealants.

The Tree House

Gira Giersiepen GmbH & Co KG

The Tree House is a new build two bedroom house in London Ealing. Using primarily three exterior materials: grey brick, black timber and anthracite metalwork, the palette is simple where the rough brick contrasts the sharp black detailing.

The Gira Esprit Linoleum-Plywood design line complements the interior design with its natural materials perfectly.Architect: Fletcher Crane ArchitectsPhotography by: Lorenzo Zandri
Double Leaf Roof Hatch - National Oilwell Varco

Double Leaf Roof Hatch - National Oilwell Varco

Surespan

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.
Sliding Roof Access - Ferrari World

Sliding Roof Access - Ferrari World

Surespan

Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi needed a unique solution to allow for maintenance of rollercoaster carts. Due to restricted space, a sliding hatch was proposed to allow easy craning in and out. Surespan manufactured and supplied a SLHE Aluminium, thermally broken, single leaf, electrically operated, sliding roof access hatch. The hatch was a large 5400 x 4000 structural opening sliding hatch. A sliding hatch allowed maximum clear space. Operated by a 230v geared motor. The lid and upstand are filled with 50mm thick CFC and HCFC free Polyisocyanurate insulation which offers a U-Value of 0.43W/m²K.
