Incorrect manhole ladder specification putting industry at risk
The latest British Standards (BS) for vertical manhole ladder specification are not being universally followed and we urge engineering specifiers to be vigilant in order to avoid future enquiries from the Health and Safety Executive in the event of an accident.
£196m investment into Midlands roads requires caution
In August, news outlets reported that National Highways is investing almost two hundred million (£196m) into roads in the Midlands – a significant increase in the investment in 2021. More than 140 road improvement schemes are set to benefit from the generous financial backing, including major routes such as the M6, M5, M1, and A43.
Ductile iron and steel access covers, or gully gratings and bespoke steel solutions, we have what you're looking for.
Manhole covers can be safety critical. In certain circumstances failure or misuse could lead to injury or loss of life. With this in mind we have developed products that incorporate features which help to eliminate these failure mechanisms, minimising safety issues, optimising whole life cost.
We have a gully grating for every scenario including straight bar, hinged, v-grating and more. Our gratings are available across all of our key ranges, Unite, Highway and Tristar meaning you can find the right grating for you that offers the exact feature specification you are looking for.
Steel access covers
We offer a comprehensive range of steel access covers, all designed and manufactured to the highest standards. Our standard range includes pressed and fabricated steel and recessed covers. We can also work alongside you to produce a bespoke solution that is tailored to your exacting requirements.
Geosynthetic solutions from the experts
Our geosynthetic project design and specification services have established us as one of the UK's leading suppliers.
Our extensive range includes ground stabilisation, reinforcement, erosion control, drainage, environmental protection and grass protection.
FasTrack and MultiTrack geotextiles, and E'GRID geogrids are amongst our most popular ranges, having been used throughout the UK on countless critical infrastructure projects.
We are always on hand to provide you with the knowledge you need. Offering to help and support you every step of the way, from project design and specification through to delivery, installation and beyond.
Our products, systems and services can help to provide solutions to everyday civil engineering problems.
Roads, drainage and sewer access
Innovative access and drainage solutions which solve common everyday failures and annoyances of specifiers and installers alike.
Compounds and haul roads
Use geosynthetics to substantially reduce construction costs while massively accelerating timescales and lowering carbon emissions.
Rapidly construct a safe environment with our working platform solutions.
Embankments, slopes, bunds and walls
Reinforce your existing structures instead of creating concrete solutions.
Sustainable urban drainage systems
Reduce the impact of extreme weather conditions with slow-release reservoirs for surface-water run off.
Landscaping and tree planting
Avoid a concrete jungle by increasing flexible rooting volume and growing tress in your urban developments.
We're ready and able to help
Our systems, services and solutions are perfectly positioned to offer significant savings in a construction market which is experiencing increased pressure. The demands on the construction sector have never been greater, with significant demand in terms of new house building and generation defining infrastructure projects to improve transport and energy generation.
Our innovative solutions can offer time, cost and hassle savings to all involved in the process of specifying and installing our civil engineering solutions.
Building sustainability into everything we do
With the recently released IPCC report on climate change there has never been a more critical time to be aware of our impact on the environment - and Wrekin and the wider civil engineering industry takes its responsibilities extremely seriously.
We are committed to working towards minimising the environmental impact of all our activities, from developing products that increase whole of life performance, to recycling and reducing waste and emissions wherever we can.
