VHE awarded Wheatley Hall Road POS works
23 April 2019
VHE have been awarded the reclamation contract for the public open space area on the Wheatley Hall Road development site in Doncaster. The works, on behalf of client Harworth Group, will complete and complement an area on the site currently being developed by a house builder.
The works include site clearance and earthworks turnover to remove surface structures, foundations, asbestos and delineation of the available materials to enable best reuse to suit the site criteria. The hard materials recovered from the reclamation of the area will be crushed to provide a client stockpile of 6F2 for later reuse.
Early phased drainage to create a headwall, out falling into the existing oxbow lake, then piped back to a limiting flow rate manhole, will be constructed to allow the house builder access to continue the pipe runs into their development.
The phase 2 drainage is to be completed, once earthworks are suitably progressed, which comprises of continuing an additional piped run across into the POS developed area, to another headwall set within a lined balancing pond.
Earthworks excavation of a stockpile from beneath overhead electric cables, formed part of the constraints for carrying out the earthworks. This will enable the reclamation, which then opens up the area for the POS development. A Geosynthetic clay liner will be installed into the newly created balancing pond as part of the earthworks development. The area will have marker layer placed within the formation layer, before soils are placed and seeded to complete the landform. Production of a validation report for the works completes the programme of works.
