Kilmac have recently just completed a Phase 1 visit to Greenmarket, Dundee in what is going to be the new local BT headquarters for Ogilvie Construction. This has been a complicated site which has seen us have to carefully plan out our sequence of works due to limited space, a 4m difference in level between the 2No buildings and other trades working around us.
The main element of works seen a 4m height in situ concrete retaining wall installed. Due to the specification of waterproof concrete, this had to be planned out in pours so as not to exceed 12m length at a time. Works seen the formwork erected and the concrete installed via tower crane and skip. Programme was critical for these works as the wall installation was key to the waterproofing installation and backfill for the floor slab preparation works.
Other works in this Phase seen us install 600m3 of concrete foundations. The pads were planned out in zones to allow continuity of works for the pile cropping, reinforcement installation and associated concrete installation.
Care had to be taken throughout with forward planning as it was critical we completed each zones works in full before the steel was erected as this seen all access basically closed off.
Kilmac are back on site in Autumn to carry out our Phase 2 works which are predominantly hard landscaping works to the external paths around the building. These are expected to take 6-8 weeks to complete.
