Econ Group were appointed to clear a former rail storage area. The job consisted of clearing 16 loads of fly tipped materials and levelling off the area to make safe for the site investigations.

Once level we when used a backhoe loader to excavate 26 trial pits across the site going to a depth of 3.5 metres. Samples of the spoil in each hole were taken to assess the make up of the ground and its content. 

Operatives cut back the bushes and vegetation around the site boundary with heavy duty strimmer’s and bush cutters. All the green waste was recycled at our transfer station.

Finally, we replaced the old wooden fence with a heavy-duty steel palisade fence around the boundary with gates for access. This fencing also acted as protection to stop any further fly tipping on the site.  The site was cleared on programme and within budget costs.

“Our client had a limited budget on this project but need to get the full scope of works completed ready for future development of the site. Using our backhoe loader means we were able to carry out the works on the project each day and drive the machine off every night saving on the cost of any security measures. Our backhoe was also able to undertake all tasks with ease. This saving of course helped us work with the client’s budget” – commented Senior Operations Manager Liam Moore
