Worcester Park

23 September 2020

Cognition has started groundworks & remediation at Taylor Wimpey's Worcester Park development.

Taylor Wimpey came to us with a problem! They had significant stockpiles of asbestos contaminated soil on site that was destined for landfill, archaeological remains that needed protection, a large excavation that needed filling and a requirement for import of 3,500m3 of pile mat material.

Cognition completely rationalised the groundworks design to arrive at a far cheaper, quicker and more practical solution.

We developed:

1) an archaeology protection system using sustainably sourced sand imported under the CL:AIRE DoWCoP;

2) processing, picking and reuse of the stockpiles onsite;

3) engineered filling of the existing voids using site won soils; and

4) cement stabilisation of site soils and placement as pile mat.

Novel solutions to de-risk the ground is what we do best!

Our approach has led to significant cost and programme savings for our client.

Please get in touch if you would like a similar 'can do' solution to your site remediation and groundworks.
