Aarsleff Ground Engineering awarded geotechnical contract for new high-end car dealership

    Several high-end car showrooms have opened their doors in
    the last 12 months in the Leeds area and Aarsleff Ground Engineering (AGE) are pleased
    to announce their involvement in the design and build of the foundations and
    remediation work of a new prestige car showroom on behalf of MCS Group Ltd.

    Once completed the showroom will have the capacity to display
    up to 19 new and used vehicles across two storeys’, with an additional display
    space for an extra 15 vehicles. The development will also house a 13-bay specialist
    vehicle preparation and repair centre.

    AGE will commence the remediation of the shallow Black Bed coal
    Seam under the site on at the beginning of May for 3 weeks. This will involve
    the drilling of 287nr boreholes to 16m below ground level and the injection of
    grout to prevent potential void migration of workings.

    Shortly after the remediation phase, Aarsleff will mobilise their Banut 300 rig to install
    148No. 200mm square, 8m long precast reinforced concrete piles.

    Aarsleff’s Geotechnical Estimator Chris Purvis said,

    “We are highly confident in executing this
    multi-disciplined project for our Client having recently completed a number of similar
    projects in the Leeds area over the last 12 months. Our previous experience of
    remediating and piling through the Black Bed Coal Seam was used to assist in
    the design phase and to hopefully deliver a robust and cost-effective solution.
