Several high-end car showrooms have opened their doors in
the last 12 months in the Leeds area and Aarsleff Ground Engineering (AGE) are pleased
to announce their involvement in the design and build of the foundations and
remediation work of a new prestige car showroom on behalf of MCS Group Ltd.
Once completed the showroom will have the capacity to display
up to 19 new and used vehicles across two storeys’, with an additional display
space for an extra 15 vehicles. The development will also house a 13-bay specialist
vehicle preparation and repair centre.
AGE will commence the remediation of the shallow Black Bed coal
Seam under the site on at the beginning of May for 3 weeks. This will involve
the drilling of 287nr boreholes to 16m below ground level and the injection of
grout to prevent potential void migration of workings.
Shortly after the remediation phase, Aarsleff will mobilise their Banut 300 rig to install
148No. 200mm square, 8m long precast reinforced concrete piles.
Aarsleff’s Geotechnical Estimator Chris Purvis said,
“We are highly confident in executing this
multi-disciplined project for our Client having recently completed a number of similar
projects in the Leeds area over the last 12 months. Our previous experience of
remediating and piling through the Black Bed Coal Seam was used to assist in
the design phase and to hopefully deliver a robust and cost-effective solution.
