DDS Contracting are currently undertaking the enabling and groundworks package for a residential development comprising 13 two storey new build properties. The JCT contract includes architectural and civil engineering design works.
Initially during the pre-construction phase, following establishment of contractors compound, we cleared the site, felled trees, carried out survey works and S278 highway works included a new entrance road to site and gravel surface parking. Across the whole site, levels were then reduced and graded.
Construction works commenced with the construction of estate roads up to base course, including foul and surface water drainage, street lighting and below ground services installations. An attenuation tank and aquacell blocks were also installed with deep bore soakaways, 3no biodisc treatment units, catch pits, along with all associated pipework and chambers. The construction of houses are split into three phased sections, permitting Jenner construction teams to commence the above ground structural works. DDS Contracting are carrying out the phased works alongside the Jenner Construction teams. Initially, foundation trenches were excavated and strip foundations poured. Below ground walls were formed and once concrete cured to the require strengths, the installations of proprietary suspended concrete precast beam and block flooring proceeded.
DDS Contracting are scheduled to undertake kerbing installations, top surfacing works, finalisation of the drainage and manholes as well as the final landscaping works required to complete.
