With this year's Ground Engineering Awards coming up, take a look back at our work with ASH Group and PaSCoE at the former Cambrian Quarry Works in Wales. This project was nominated for Best UK Project up to £1 Million at last year's ceremony.

Working together, we designed and constructed a 250 metre access road across a steep, heavily wooded slope leading into the site. This challenging project had to be carefully engineered to link in with the existing highway infrastructure, whilst also being sensitive to the needs of the local community and wildlife. 

By engaging local stakeholders as part of our outreach programme, we addressed a wide range of issues, from stringent planning permission requirements to environmental constraints such as tree preservation orders and habitat protection for local wildlife. The local community was delighted with the outcome and commended us on our sensitive approach.

We've done it again! We're proud to be nominated this year for Best Ground Investigation Project over £500,000. You can read about our work alongside United Utilities at Castlerigg, Cumbria in the 2016/17 edition of Geotopics.
