Fountainhead Brewery

Professional Remediation Limited were engaged by David Wilson Homes to undertake a detailed assessment of the proposed development levels and produce an earthworks design to minimise surplus materials generated by the development.

  • Breaking out, grubbing up and crushing of relic slabs and foundations remaining across the site following previous demolition works.
  • Clearance of trees and vegetation from across the site with transportation of timber and wood to a biomass plant for sustainable disposal of materials for re-use as power station fuel.
  • Processing of demolition rubble remaining from previous works to remove unsuitable materials and allow rubble to be re-used on site following processing.
  • Excavation and removal of surplus materials to a site exempt from environmental permitting for use as restoration soils.
  • Stripping and stockpiling of topsoil materials for re-use in garden and landscaped areas.
  • Regrading of the site using site won fill materials to achieve proposed development levels.
  • Crushing of oversize arisings produced by removal of slabs/foundations and re-cycling to generate materials suitable for re-use in the earthwork scheme and subsequent development.
  • Crushing of rock materials encountered during the earthworks for re-use as aggregate during the subsequent development.

In total the works comprised excavation and engineered placement of approximately 40,000m3 of fill materials and the disposal of approximately 15,000m3 of surplus materials for restoration purposes.

The contract was undertaken in several phases over an approximate 30 week programme.

PRL also produced approximately 4,000m3 of crushed materials graded as 6F2 by recycling oversize concrete and brick materials produced by removal of relic structures and approximately 2,000m3 of processed rock, which was subsequently stockpiled for later re-use by David Wilson Homes.

The site is a 20 acre former brewery, which was subsequently developed by David Wilson Homes Limited.

Professional Remediation Limited were engaged by David Wilson Homes to undertake a detailed assessment of the proposed development levels and produce an earthworks design to minimise surplus materials generated by the development. PRL undertook detailed modelling and produced a materials management plan, which allowed for the generation and re-use of site won aggregate and reduced the volume of surplus materials generated by the development from in excess of 45,000m3 to less than 15,000m3.

Professional Remediation were then able to issue a fixed price proposal to undertake the necessary preparatory earthworks and assist David Wilson Homes to develop the site with confidence that residual ground issues could be remedied without costs increasing.
