Birnam Crescent in Bearsden was an extensive enabling works contract to increase site levels and create the required development platform for 20 new homes for major UK housebuilder, CALA Homes.
Our works were designed to minimise the large import of materials required to construct the development platform. Existing soils on-site were not suitable for house foundations, and therefore the soft formation soils were modified prior to up-fill to eliminate the requirement for piling. Soils were also modified beneath the required retaining walls to achieve a suitable founding horizon.
