Specialist pre-construction services provided at Eden Brows
Central Alliance provided a variety of specialist pre-construction services to Story Contracting for this difficult access project. The location proved difficult to reach with conventional equipment and ground conditions were challenging following severe weather conditions. Geo Central carried out detailed ground investigations including rotary boreholes using a special platform drill mounted on Story Contracting’s long reach excavator that safely carried out investigations on the steep embankments at Eden Brows. In addition, Survey Central carried out topographical surveys and used drones for aerial inspections that delivered images and video footage that clearly showed the extent of the embankment failure. CCTV condition surveys of culverts running under the railway line were also carried out in order to remove debris.
