These works included construction of roads and sewers, reinforced concrete structures, internal drainage, concrete floor slab construction, along with the installation of underground attenuation systems.

Chartrange were also employed to carry out all of the external works to the scheme. This included block paving, asphalt surfacing, topsoil placement and the installation of a variety of pre-cast concrete elements. Ensuring that Chartrange carried out works on site from groundbreak to handover.

St Catherine’s Academy – Earthworks, Remediation & Groundworks

Client: Kier Northern

Scope of works:
Acting as Sub Contractor, Chartrange were initially appointed by Kier Northern to carry out the Earthworks and Remediation works, including the extensive construction of External retaining structures associated with the re-grade levels for the new St. Catherine’s Academy.
As part of our works 60,000m3 of material was used in the site cut and fill balance, 35,000m3 of this material was treated on site with specialist modification techniques in order to achieve a minimum foundation bearing capacity of 100kn/m2 for the lower building foundations, which included reinforced concrete retaining structures, pad foundations and ground beams.
The site was topographically challenging and following the near completion of the Earthworks / Remediation works Chartrange were further appointed as the sub-contractor for Phase 2 of the works. These works included construction of roads and sewers, reinforced concrete structures, internal drainage, concrete floor slab construction, along with the installation of underground attenuation systems.

Tesco, Accrington – Remediation, Earthworks & Groundworks

Client: Bowmer & Kirkland

Bowmer & Kirkland

Scope of works:
The scheme involved a mass reduced level excavation and the disposal off-site of circa 45,000m3 plus arbitrary cut to fill including the removal of relic foundations. The cut to fill material was stabilised within the works as the construction platform to achieve the design CBR value of 30%, reducing the need for aggregate materials.

Chartrange were then awarded full substructure, drainage and external works packages on this scheme. With such works as casting in-situ concrete foundations and attenuation systems through to hard landscaping and asphalt surfacing. This project was delivered on time and within budget for our client Bowmer & Kirkland

Co-operative Headquarters – Bulk Earthworks

Client: Bam Construction

EarthworksOur contribution to the most prestigious project in Manchester in 2010 was the mass excavation and disposal of some 50,000m3 of alluvial deposits which was completed in traffic sensitive and built up city centre location without disruption. We have further minimised environmental impact by re-engineering materials on-site use and for export of materials to other schemes.

Scope of works:
Bulk excavation and disposal, management of contaminated materials, provision of piling platform, management and eradication of invasive plant species and capping of legacy culverts.

NEC Engineering Works – Remediation

Client: Taylor Woodrow on behalf of TESCO

RemediationThe former site use was the NEC engineering works, the developable site area equated to 160 acres and was remediated in line with the environmental remediation strategy that had been developed in order to redevelop the site for its proposed end use being a TESCO distribution centre.

Historic demolition had been carried out by the vendor prior to the site acquisition by TESCO, demolition wastes were evident at the site and the ground investigation identified contamination and geo-technically unsuitable ground conditions for the foundations of the proposed distribution centre.

Scope of works:
The works involved large scale earthworks which consisted of removal of existing slabs, re-grading of the site to achieve the desired finished levels, this consisted of the relocation of 985,000m3 of made grounds of which 750,000m3 was geo-technically improved utilising lime stabilisation techniques, the remaining made grounds were geo-technically improved by re-engineering methods, all relic foundations and other impediments were removed and re-processed on site, overall 100,000m3 of sub-base compliant with the specification for highway works was generated from the re-processing on site and was utilised within the works as the construction platform to a required CBR value of 30%. Contamination on site was encapsulated and utilised within landscape areas, beneath the subsequent environmental cover system.

All the works were tested and inspected in line with the agreed remediation strategy and the site was satisfactorily signed off on completion by the local Environmental Heath Authority and the Environment Agency.
