Success stories

Ground stabilisation for Code Fitness Gym

We successfully implemented a ground stabilisation solution for Caliber Construction to complete the development of Code Fitness Gym in Nottinghamshire.

After encountering ground problems during the construction of a new gym on a countryside business park, Caliber Construction knew who to contact. However, contacting us after works had begun meant the need to provide a time effective solution was critical.

The positive impact of geosynthetics

Geosynthetics play an integral role in major building and civil engineering projects - and we have a wealth of technical expertise in this essential sector.

Alongside our technical experience, built up over 40 years, we have a full range of solutions for ground stabilisation, reinforcement, erosion control, drainage, environmental protection and more.

Our products, such as our non-woven geotextiles, are manufactured and tested in accordance with the latest UK, European and international standards and are UKCA, UKNI and CE marked.

They contribute significantly to the performance of civil engineering projects. We are proud of the longevity of our products, which offer significant reductions in the amount of materials required.

Essential geogrid solutions

Our geogrid solutions can reduce the thickness of a haul road, compound or working platform, typically by 50%, resulting in substantially reduced construction costs and time.

They improve site health and safety, accelerate construction timescales and reduce the project’s overall environmental impact.

Early engagement means the geogrids can be manufactured to the exact width the contractor needs, suiting the site-specific requirements and creating an even more cost-effective grid.

At Wrekin, we offer two grades of geogrids. For permanent, adoptable roads, we tend to use our premium E’GRID range with a 100 year design life. However, we also offer SX Grid , which has the same impact in terms of thickness reduction but it's properties lend itself perfectly to temporary solutions such as compounds and haul roads.

Haul road expertise

We have a deep understanding of creating initial site compounds, working platforms and haul roads, which we know can have a huge impact on resources for contractors.

Many major infrastructure projects need well-constructed haul roads so that site traffic can operate safely and effectively and which need hard standing areas for construction equipment, vehicles and site offices.

Haul roads are a practical and necessary cost, yet they are often overlooked and not considered as an area for future improvement. That’s where Wrekin, with our expertise in applying solutions that benefit contractors, can help. We can identify what is needed and provide solutions that are as cost and time-effective as possible.

The Kinema in the Woods

The Kinema in the Woods is a cinema in the village of Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, England. Dating back to 1922, this beautiful woodland setting is a protected conservation area.  Wrekin Products were invited to assist with creating a new access road and car park in the sensitive area in which the cinema is located and which is surrounded by hundreds of trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs).

Thetford Woodland Lodges

Thetford Forest is the UK’s largest man made lowland forest. It’s patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves provide the ideal setting for a great day out, and a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life. Due to the weight involved, it was clear that the correct selection of ProtectaWeb™ depth was imperative to the success of the project.
