Description of the job:

This project involved providing a ‘turn key’ pre construction enabling scheme which required the Demolition of the famous timber engineering buildings and associated offices where the timber for the ill-fated ‘Titanic’ was produced and formed. Following the sizable demolition process where we reclaimed and recycled over 2000 tonnes of Ferrous Steel, the works then involved the removal of footings and relic foundations, re-Engineering the ground including cement stabilisation to form a building formation +/- to 5mm of the required level.


Interesting Facts:

The size of the site was approx. 580,000 sq ft and was demolished, remediated and re-engineered in 8 weeks.

We worked closely with our client TSL so as to allow the piling / construction process to begin following week 3 of our commencement.

The site was originally part of the Harlow and Wolff works were the famous Titanic cruise liner was built, it was good to work under the shadow of the famous Samson & Goliath cranes which have been in the Titanic Quarter skyline for over 50 years.

The end user for the site will be Amazon.
