From minor works to major projects K Rouse have the experience and resources to deliver value engineered civils projects, on time and on budget.
Our experience covers all aspects of the discipline which overlaps with our highways, utilities and rail work.
K Rouse's specialist civil engineering expertise was demonstrated working for Clugston on canal side works for the Huddersfield Waterfront redevelopment for Kirklees Council under the supervision of British Waterways.
Our work scope centered around the redevelopment of a section of the canal by raising its base by 3m, building a new lock and associated drainage, public realm works, and the strengthening of the adjacent river wall on the river Colne with a Gabion Structure.
The key to the construction was the design of the temporary works structures around the new lock gate structures which were being built on the line of the existing canal. These were developed as 3 sided cofferdams propped off the existing capping beam and canal walls.
K Rouse successfully completed the project on time and budget with the canal being reopened on schedule for the new season.
Ratcliffe Power Station
The wide range of our experience and project management shone through in our works for AMCO at Ratcliffe Power Station. There K Rouse took on a variety of packages all of which involved working to the stringent health and safety procedures necessary when working in a live power station environment.
Our packages included; crane bases, id fan bases, various ground beams, pile caps and lift pits, small works such as pipe supports and ancillary bases, and the installation of service roads including drainage, kerbing and paving.
Much of the works undertaken by K Rouse involved working adjacent to or within existing buildings. This required the use of specialist plant to operate inside areas of restricted headroom and working space, or the use of small tools and hand digging only.
As this was a live power station their were also numerous services to be taken account of, and a key aspect of K Rouse’s commitment to excellence was their location and protection, maintaining our excellent Health and Safety record and ensuring the smooth running of both our works and those of our fellow contractors.
