Most memorable or unusual jobs to date
Package managing/engineering a 24hr slipform concrete operation for 9 weeks at Lynemouth Biomass Plant, forming 6 new 33m high silo’s designed for housing biomass fuel, with a variety of openings and structural plates cast within the walls of the silos to which large conveyors belts are fixed that distribute the fuel to other parts of site.
The Consett Heritage Trail has been a fascinating project to work on due to the direct interface with the public, overcoming the logistical difficulties such as access and egress to working areas, getting plant and materials in to the dense woodland; as well as the scale of the job with areas being worked over a 5 mile route.
What is the biggest benefit for clients working with Absolute Civil Engineering?
“ACE have good control over the work tendered for/in operation and as a result the vision of steady growth is realistic, achievable and exciting. I would like to see ACE work move away from the so-called bread and butter and on to more challenging heavy civils projects with Tier 1 contractors, as well as this, further projects akin to the Heritage Trail would be great for Absolute.”
