Project Description

Client: ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions Ltd Location: Wolverhampton Surface Area: 435m²

The Challenges

ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions (AMDS) is a global leader in steel processing and distribution.    They have several distribution sites in the West Midlands and run a large fleet of heavy duty lorries delivering across the UK and Europe.

The Requirement

Due to the companies continued growth and 24 hour service their large logistics yard and vehicle storage area was receiving consistent use.  As  a result the yard area became so worn that it was necessary to completely renew the whole site. The existing HGV parking area was holding water during heavy rain, which added to its erosion, resulting in difficulty and sometimes danger when uncoupling trailers.

AMDS contracted Lavish to remove the old surface, install new sub base, install rebar reinforcement to the yard area, renew drainage, provide a staff car park entrance and re surface the entire area in a concrete mix, tailor-made to their requirement.

Works carried out included;

  • Groundworks and excavation
  • Supply and install new drainage system
  • Repair manhole inspection lids
  • Breaker out existing concrete
  • Install sub-soil
  • Install reinforced meshing and high strength concrete (220 m³)
  • Provide tamped finish and concrete curing treatment
