Consolidate wins £3.7 million worth of contracts

Scotland-based Consolidate, a ground engineering specialist, has won two contracts worth a combined £3.7 million to stabilise old mine workings on the sites of new housing developments in Irvine and Kirkcaldy.

Work has already begun in Irvine for on the £1.5 million project for David Wilson Homes. The 30-week job will involve infilling three mine seams, working together with consulting engineers Johnson, Poole and Bloomer.

Consolidate will use boreholes to pressure inject a cement/pfa grout mixture into the mines.

Work will also begin soon at Chapel Level, Kirkcaldy on the £2.2 million job for Gladedale Homes. Set to take 38 weeks, the project is being carried out in conjunction with consulting engineer DR Murray and Associates.

The project in Kirkcaldy involves the infilling of two discrete mine seams that exhibit fault patterns all along the 1km long site.
