Ben Bailey Homes

41 New Build Residential Plots @ Clowne, Derbyshire

Wallace Groundworks was awarded the contract to carry out all plot works to Ben Bailey Homes first major development since its resurrection by Conroy Brook Construction. The contract including excavation of foundations, plot drainage, substructure masonry and ground floor slabs. This was followed by an instruction to include all external hard landscaping and road surfacing along with services infrastructure ducts, a site wide remediation strategy and Section 278 off-site works.

The foundations consisted of both strip and trench fill footing subject to excavation depths. Plot drainage incorporated individual plot attenuation tanks. The addition of the utility infrastructure works included a new substation base and the complex diversion of existing electrical mains through the live development. Wallace Groundworks received praise from Western Power for the way in which assisted their works.

Part way through our contract we encountered several undiscovered underground fissures which required explorative works to enable the design team to engineer a stabilising solution.

All works have been completed in line with the Ben Bailey Homes construction programme, which has been adapted several times through the course of the contract to accommodate plot sales.
