Chapel Down, Curious Brewery
Ashford, Kent

GSE Building & Civil Engineering Ltd completed all of the foundations, groundworks and landscaping for the entire project and installed specialist drainage materials to cope with the chemicals used to wash down the brewing tanks.

We are also very proud to have built an Artic Lorry Turntable. This enabled the gas lorries to have easy access onto and off the site as they were able to be rotated 360°.

An unusual element to this project was that we had to reinforce the ground upon which the brewing tanks were to sit on. We did this by using a Cordek Filcor system. This was then covered with reinforced concrete to make this suitable for holding the large brewing tanks.

Other factors of concern with this location were the Ashford to London rail route which had to be taken into consideration with construction works being in such close proximity.

This project was particularly exciting for us as not only do we value our relationship with the main contractors, but we also knew this client very well as they supply the GSE Group owned Hythe Imperial hotel and the Marquis of Granby pub and hotel with the Curious Brew brand.
