A creative solution for Potter Place

A unique deep soil mixing technique has been used to deliver an effective and fast solution for culvert works at Potter Place in Glasgow.
During Ground Developments Ltd’s excavation to facilitate a new Combines Sewer Overflow (CSO) chamber for clients Barhale on behalf of Scottish Water, the project stalled when it was discovered the base of the excavation could not provide sufficient bearing pressure to support the installation.
Kevin Mackenzie, Commercial Director for Ground Developments Ltd, said, “The excavation couldn’t be taken any deeper due to restrictions of the plant capability on-site.
“Therefore our capability to deliver cost-effective solutions for the difficult soil conditions that we often come across in Scotland, and the specialist apparatus that we own and operate meant that we could respond really quickly to solve this problem for our client Barhale.
“Our deep soil mixing techniques are carried out in-situ making us the only company in Scotland who can complete this type of work within a defined development area which ultimately offers clients value for money.
“Whilst this is possibly one of our smallest projects, we’re really delighted to have been able to take this project from enquiry through to mobilisation and completion in just two weeks saving our client both time and budget on costly alternatives.”
