DXI completed two sections of engineering clay lining that was required for environmental protection within an active landfill located at Stoke. Working firstly to provide a formation surface across land that had previously been exploited for hard mineral extraction, DXI completed excavation of natural materials including rock. DXI then utilised clay materials that were provided by the Client and engineered these in a series of compacted layers to achieve a low permeability barrier.
Engineering control was completed using GPS controlled excavation and filling plant, to provide a high level of topographical control, whilst eliminating a pedestrian engineer from the workplace, and the associated risks. The works were subject to independent sampling, testing and reporting. DXI provided 3 dimensional data and interpretation that demonstrated specification compliance had been exceeded.
• The works were completed in line with the agreed programme.
• Suitable fill was generated for future site use
• The works had a low impact on existing activities
• The site was handed to the client for business continuity.
Excavation to profile, clay engineering and protection
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.
