Formation of New Storage Yard – Rosyth
Thursday, November 12th, 2015
Skene Group Ltd have successfully completed the new concrete storage yard at Rosyth. The tight timescales on the job in conjunction with the poor ground conditions and existing services infrastructure running through the area, meant that the team on site were starting pours at 6:00am. Skene Group ltd were pouring and finishing 180m3 pours within one day on the job. The success of the pours were down to supply and having Skene trucks on the job meant the result was never in doubt. The Skene Group Ltd engaged with a local structural engineers practice to ensure that the bearing capacity of the underlying strata was dug out and structurally filled using Skene quarried stone to achieve the best suitable bearing achievable within a dock reclaimed area. New drainage was installed to the area where minimum gradients were used to move surface water, thus allowing the double stacked containers to move safely over the area without having an adverse angle to through the top container off. Skene Group Ltd have the ability to achieve the falls to this high specification.
