GSE carried out the foundations, groundworks, drainage, attenuation and external works for Kier Construction Limited in two phases on this occupied school site.

Due to the age and previous uses of this site the ground contained a significant number of unforeseen existing live services. Through a process of detailed site surveys and the utilisation of trailer operated Vac-Ex units, GSE completed the substantial services and drainage installation safely and without compromising the integrity of any of the existing services.

Having completed the first phase (education block), GSE returned to site to complete the sub-structure work for the new library building which was of modular construction.
