The works comprised the installation of 12,500m2 of a Geosynthetic capping layer to an operation landfill site to allow the site to be progressively restored
The capping layers comprised 300mm regulating layer excavated from on-site stockpiles. This was overlain by a 1mm thick welded Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) geomembrane liner, a Geosynthetic Drainage Layer (GDL) and 1m thickness of restoration soils.
Sampling and testing of the permanent works materials was a pre-requisite for regulatory sign off of the completed works.
Haul distances were on average greater than 700m and the project was completed on time despite having to commence the works in Q3 of 2015.
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.
