DXI constructed building development platforms for our Client in Blackburn on land that contained poor quality soils, on a steeply sloping site.
Following an initial activity to access the site with the construction of a temporary access road, a sequence of cut to fill operations were completed, to provide a series of development platforms.
The existing moisture content of both the existing soils and other imported soils was found to exceed the compliance level and as a result was modified using lime, and the soil re-engineered to an exacting specification.
The platforms were then capped to provide a suitable base for piling access.
The development also required a concrete retaining wall to be installed. DXI developed and installed a precast system that offered both programme and cost advantages to the Client.
Construction of earthworks including modification of unsuitable soils, and pre cast contract retaining walls.
I have arrived on the Ulverston site for PM Group as a Health & Safety Advisor, in building 11. Last Thursday I had an issue, that was not getting sorted for me, I was close to going for lots of beers. For one reason or another the DXI Lads came to me and said they would take care of it for me.
It wasn’t a small job by any means, it completely took me back, that it wasn’t even their job to do, the flexibility they showed and willingness to help, with a smile on their face I might add.
