Project: Ash Lagoon Three
Client: Alcan Primary Metal– Europe
Location: Lynemouth, Northumberland
G & B Civil Engineering Ltd were awarded this contract for Alcan Primary Metal Smelting Ltd based on an alternative tender.
The original proposed scheme involved placing over 1000 pre cast concrete units to form a wall at the edge of the lagoon. As well being time consuming this would have caused both storage and logistical problems, moving materials along the narrow easement without passing places. The innovative use of a slip form paver to form the concrete wall overcame these problems and provided the key to this alternative tender.
This scheme is a good example of how G & B Civil Engineering Ltd can use its knowledge and expertise to provide best value
