The Challenges

Hawkins Construction carried out all the civil works on this project. Hawkins designed and installed the piled foundations, which was a particularly challenging operation through an area of site with a high concentration underground services. We formed the reinforced concrete base, walls and plinths to provide a water tight continuous construction.

On completion of the concrete works we installed a Ucrete, chemically resistant lining, which will provide years of maintenance free protection for the facility.
