The area around York is well known for its high water table, and unstable clayey and sandy ground conditions. Conditions can change dramatically across adjacent sites and can vary consdierably from the site investigation depending under what conditions it was undertaken. We knew we had key dates to hit for steel erection and undertook a series of trial pits across the site in order to assess the current ground conditions and procure system dewatering plant in advance of the work. Unusually, the conditions proved favourable and we were able to offer the client a saving on the risk of dewatering.
After commencing work on site, we also worked at resequencing our works to further suit Interserve's preferred phasing.
