ALDI REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION DEPOT QUEENBOROUGH ISLE OF SHEPPEY
We completed the bulk earthworks to the new regional distribution depot between August and December 2015.
In advance of the main excavation works protected species of grasses and moth bearing plants were relocated on site as part of an environmental mitigation process this was undertaken by specialist contractors and supervised by English Nature.
The works required the stripping of over 140000 m2 of topsoil to be placed in bunds around the site. A bulk excavation of 120000 m3 was undertaken with all materials being reused as fill on site following lime stabilisation.
The surface formations were all cement treated with over 120000 m2 of surface area treated before 60000 tonnes of recycled capping materials were imported to site.
In addition to the stabilisation works over 5000 metres of land drainage was installed and 150000 m2 of geogrids were used on site.
