Works are progressing nicely at our project in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire. Soilfix is carrying out remediation & enabling works on a former town gasworks, scrapyard, council depot and allotments.
Hill Group UK are redeveloping the 0.7Ha site, situated close to the centre of the historic market town of Ramsey, into 82 homes for affordable rent, social rent and shared ownership.
Works comprise the targeted remediation of gasworks infrastructure & residues, groundwater betterment, modular processing of Made Ground to remove deleterious materials, stabilisation/solidification of geotechnically poor soils for ground improvement, aggregate recycling, land reclamation to raise site levels, and construction of sustainable ‘hybrid’ working platforms for piling. Construction of piled foundations and groundworks is scheduled to commence during late September 2022.
Following the main phase of construction, Hill will complete the placement of clean capping layers across garden / open space areas to complete remediation works to the satisfaction of Huntingdon District Council.
