The project at Sandal Park involved stabilising the eroding banks of a local park lake. Gabion baskets were used to support the banks and coir rolls installed to protect the other banks from future collapse.
Due to limited site space and the size of the machinery required to carry out the works, careful thought had to be put into programming the works. We had to ensure the site was secure at all-times due to the high volume of public and children interested in the works being carried out.
Our operatives faced obstacles that were unforeseen before the works commenced, including the large volume of silt on the lake bed and the overnight filling of the works area with water. We were able to overcome these issues by engineering our way around the problems and are on target to successfully complete the works to programme and budget.
