Exceeding client expectations is our core objective.....
I was impressed by the whole package offered by PowerCem, knowledgeable and informative as well as professional. With skilled design, engineering and delivery, enabling us to achieve considerable environmental and programme benefits due to the greatly reduced aggregate import into site for the haul roads and crane working platforms. I would use them again without hesitation.
We have used RoadCem to produce temporary working platforms for piling rigs on a number of projects. No matter what the in-situ soils have been the result has been a safe and solid bearing layer for site operations.
RoadCem is one of the best kept secrets in the UK geotechnical industry. ....everytime we are presented with challenging soils which don't fit the default, acceptable parameters for stabilisation - we find out that RoadCem will always get the job done.
As Project Manager for MCS’s project to construct a number of warehouses at a St Modwen Park development in south west England, I used RoadCem to provide working platforms and permanent subbase replacement beneath building slabs and external yards. The use of RoadCem with its additional strength characteristics and resistance to sulphate swell enabled us to stabilise very soft cohesive soils which had elevated sulphate levels. Using RoadCem allowed us to keep working in challenging weather and ground conditions, providing a solid platform for construction plant and then subsequent completion of the concrete yards and building slabs without difficulty.
BPM managed the construction of main infrastructure to New Lubbesthorpe, a 4000+ residential development with associated new town centre and schools. In order to provide initial access approximately 1km long for construction plant, we used RoadCem to stabilise existing arable subsoils. RoadCem was used to provide a strong and reliable low carbon solution as the road was used to access a motorway bridge construction and to relocate tens of thousands of tonnes of soil as part of land parcel preparation. The road was also used as a primary access route for the early residential developers. Our RoadCem road performed very well for a number of years as required without any maintenance requirements or problems.
Bentley Project Management
I have been a site manager in the construction industry for over 30 years and have always been looking for ways to reduce vehicle movements, waste disposal and importing of materials for temporary and where appropriate permanent works. I have project managed water industry projects for MWH and JN Bentley where I have made good use of RoadCem to provide reliable temporary works access for heavy construction plant, and for one large water treatment works project at Burton I used RoadCem as part of permanent construction to replace blinding concrete to the underside of a very large new water retaining structure. I have used RoadCem to stabilise soft cohesive soils over soft ground and the results have been very impressive with the platforms and roads formed all performing well. At Burton we were able to carry out extensive piling works on the RoadCem platform and then merely sweep up prior to carrying out the permanent works. I have also personally recommended RoadCem for use within our company and it has been used to great effect on several other large water projects in the North East. Had this product been available years ago I would have certainly made use of it on several other large projects.
