Enviromesh were invited to tender alongside one other major competitor to design, supply and install a 154-metre long boundary mass gravity gabion retaining wall as part of the wider development at Beacon Business Park, Weston Road in Stafford.
Consultant designs were provided for our design engineers to refer to as part of their work in producing a flush-faced gabion wall solution. The wall would need to satisfy site planning requirements as well as meeting budgetary considerations.
Enviromesh were successful in both cases and secured the project based on our design team’s work in producing a solution that not only suited the budget but one that also exceeded the client’s expectations.
Following acceptance of the Enviromesh engineered design solution, our main challenge was to ensure the project complied with the build schedule. In support of this goal, the structure was designed to incorporate a 10-degree batter, thereby reducing the wall sections and maximising the value-engineered design.
The projected build time for this project was five weeks. Enviromesh rose to the challenge and completed the wall and vacated the site in four weeks. Careful planning early on helped us avoid any potential overruns and the team worked very hard to ensure each stage was completed within the build schedule. We were particularly mindful of other works due to start once we had finished the build, so it was important to ensure the work ran as smoothly as possible.
