VHE were appointed main contractor for the partial removal of an old industrial spoil top to form a plateau suitable for industrial movement and provision of a new vehicular access.
Works included the site clearance and earthworks re-profiling, with material moved to off-site tips. Clay was taken to the Avenue Coking Works to use as a capping / barrier. The remainder was taken to a local industrial estate development for use as fill material, with a minor amount taken to a local landfill for use as a cover material.
The site was bounded by the A61 Chesterfield Road and Old Dunstan Road and surrounded by several industrial units, a scrap yard and housing to the southern end of the site. The material had been generated from the development at Foxwood Industrial Estate, on to the top of an old industrial spoil top.
