CIVILS
PROJECTS

Project: Tilbury Grain Transfer

Scope: Civil Engineering & Groundworks

Duration: 104 Weeks

As a result of a significant fire and explosion at the Port of Tilbury, Evolution were employed to undertake construction of the new grain transportation facilities from ship to shore and storage.

The works required heavy Civil Engineering works such as deep excavations for permanent plant and machinery, around 7m below existing ground levels and well into the water table. New bridge construction for permanent transfer routes as well as extensive power distribution infrastructure.

Works in the port and alongside other adjacent significant works provided challenges and difficulties that the team worked to overcome throughout the project.

Project: Tilbury Grain Silos

Scope: Civil Engineering & Groundworks

Duration: 18  Weeks

Evolution were employed to develop a method of remediating existing silo bases after the collapse of an existing structure.

 

The silo bases required sawing in half horizontally to remove the top section and the re-installing of the top layer inclusive of new holding down equipment to allow for the fitting of new silos.

 

The works included remedial works to existing grain transfer tunnels and deep pits.

Given the size and shape of the bases, specialist formworks were employed to provide the client with the required geometry.

Project: OV4

Scope: Civil Engineering & Groundworks

Duration: 52 Weeks

Evolution were tasked with undertaking the full groundworks package at the Orchard Village Estate, as a follow on to the demolition works already undertaken.
 

The project was designed using the latest BIM 360 3D modelling technology and set out on-site using BIM 360 layout. Full utility infrastructure was installed with large main connections, district central heating equipment and power networks. The RC structure itself is large and had been programmed to be followed by pre-fabricated units.

 

The program for our works was therefore vital to avoid additional costs to the client for storing pre-fabricated units.
 

The main access to the adjacent school & housing estate was completely removed as part of our works. This road was reconstructed in a different location on-site with out of hours works and complex traffic management during the summer break and completed on programme.

Project: GMV - CMS

Scope: Civil Engineering & Groundworks

Duration: 26 Weeks

Evolution Enabling were employed to undertake a fully encompassing service.

 

This consisted of:
 

  • Full site set up as PC

  • Removal off-site of over 20,000m3 of spoil stockpiled from historic phases.

  • Full logistic set up and supervision of all muck away  operations comprising of material surveying, testing, weighbridge installation and management

  • Full ground works and civils packages to prepare site for the arrival of site concierge units.

Due to various works in the area under previous phases and differing main contractors, the logistic phase was particularly challenging. However, the spoil removal phase was completed on time and within budget without incident.


The site was prepared for the arrival of the new development concierge suite, with foundations, drainage, car park construction and external landscaping. Coupled with the contracted work additional works were awarded to facilitate the installation of further district heating networks, power, water and services supplies. These works encompassed detailed traffic management planning with the local authority, the client and the various other contractors in the area.
 

Deep excavations in the highways were designed, planned and managed to ensure safe works with all 278-works undertaken in house networks. The RC structure itself was large and had been programmed to be followed by pre-fabricated units. The program for our works was therefore vital to avoid additional costs to the client for storing pre-fabricated units.

 

The main access to the adjacent school was completely removed as part of our works. This road was reconstructed in a different location on-site without of hours works and complex traffic management during the summer break and completed on programme.

Project: Ranelagh Primary School

Scope: Civil Engineering & Groundworks

Duration: 12 Weeks

Evolution Enabling were contracted by Jerram Falkus to undertake the complete enabling and groundworks package within a live school in Plaistow.
 

The package consisted of:
