Client: Gallagher Group
Location: Ashford, Kent
Services: Precast installation
Project: Temporary Storage Bays
Product: Freestanding Retaining Walls
Duration: 2 Days
The Gallagher Group approached us with a requirement to construct temporary storage bays for a new waste recycling project for Ashford Borough Council.
The bays would be constructed on top of a new RC concrete floor slab, so the bay walls would need to be capable of retaining the material without the need for fixing.
5no storage bays were required, each bay would be approximately 4.8m wide x 3.6m deep and 2m high.
Several products were considered for the push walls including precast Lego blocks, but the decision was made by the client that a freestanding retaining wall unit from JP Concrete would be the preferred solution.4
40 blocks were required to form the five bays, these blocks were delivered and installed in 1 day by the team using our vehicle mounted Moffett.
The all-terrain Moffettt is ideal for this type of project where an agile and maneuverable installation vehicle is needed when working close to a perimeter wall.
Our Moffett vehicle is just one of the many pieces of plant available to our installation team. Also in our fleet we have a specialist vehicle mounted crane, capable of lifting up to 15T and has a reach of 12m.
