GROUNDWORKS SOLUTION FOR PROPERTY IN BROMSGROVE
Over 40m3 of LECA® LWA was specified for a property in Bromsgrove, which required a robust infill. The contractor was tasked to carry out some ground stabilization between a retaining wall and a disused barn which was causing on a neighbouring property. The contractor required a robust infill at around 1m in depth, which offered a robust and long term solution, but also required self-compacting properties that LECA® LWA can provide..
The groundwork project itself was situated in a very tight space and delivery of alternative solutions such as concrete, grout or heavier aggregates was a problematic solution. Due to the lightweight nature of LECA® LWA and its ability to pneumatically delivered through a hose from the LECA® delivery truck, the contractor could overcome this access issue and did not require creating any further developments to the property.
Amount of material: 40m3 of LECA ®LWA (10-20mm)
Interesting Fact: Grout or Concrete was originally proposed for this project
Delivery Method: Pneumatic Blowing Truck
Main Contractor: Tilsley Plant Hire
The contractor was recommended the use of LECA® LWA through a colleague who had previously specified LECA® LWA for a similar groundwork project, and it was concluded that the specification of LECA® LWA was a simpler and more cost effective solution for the project compared to alternative solutions and provided the perfect solution for the groundwork issue faced.
