Lorry filled with Geogrid

Three interesting places you can find our geosynthetics

Geosynthetic products play an integral role in most building and civil engineering projects, and our geosynthetics have been used thousands of times all over the UK. However, given the hidden nature of their role, you’d never know they were there.

With that in mind, here are three interesting locations where our geogrids, geomembranes, and geotextiles have been used.

Hinkley Point C

Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station, Somerset

Hinkley Point C in Somerset will be the first UK nuclear power station to be built in over 20 years and will provide low-carbon electricity for around six million homes across the South West.

The existing road network and infrastructure were insufficient to cope with the demands of the construction process. 

Scottish National Gallery

Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh

The Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh houses Scotland’s national collection of fine art in the heart of a World Heritage site and has recently undergone a hugely prestigious, multi-million-pound transformation project. Plans for the extensive redevelopment included the creation of new exhibition spaces, an entrance in East Princes Street Gardens, a cafe and an extensive sandstone terrace, as well as the landscaping involved.

Warner bros
MultiTrack & E'GRID

Warner Brothers Studio, Hertfordshire

Originally a Second World War airfield and Rolls-Royce testing base, the current Warner Brothers Studio in Leavesden, Hertfordshire has a diverse history.

Since becoming a film studio in the early 1990s, world-famous franchises such as James Bond, Harry Potter and Mission Impossible have been filmed at the location – the result of more than £150m being invested in the 200-acre site.
