We recently worked alongside our key supply partners, to provide a solution for a 20-acre industrial estate, that was being redeveloped to make way for 360 new homes and commercial units. The design and implementation of the land was to form a pond for site works and is part of the first phase of a wider £60M scheme.
The SUDS manual (C753) was used as the basis for design, which ensured correct material specifications. The GP®H 0.6mm attenuation grade impermeable liner and root barrier was selected given its robust nature, conformance to C753, and the ability for thermal jointing (welding).
The 300TT protection geotextile was also selected as protection grade and a class 3 filter/separator to BS8661. A Geoweb® soil reinforcement mesh was then placed above the geotextile, and filled with materials to protect and maintain the impermeability of the liner. A Tendon System was employed to negate the need to anchor pins which would have resulted in damage to the liner.
The project took just one month to complete – and Burdens supplied and distributed the materials for the project.
