Gallagher has undertaken the groundworks package for an additional fruit production facility in Hoo for International Controlled Atmosphere Ltd.

Our work comprise of earthworks, drainage, service yard hardstandings and the construction of dock levellers.

Our tender offered a value engineering solution for the use of Gallapave RCC (roller compacted concrete), a new product introduced by our quarry, for an external yard area of approximately 11,000m2, generating significant time and cost savings to the project.

Using Gallapave RCC, the new service yard was laid in less than 10 days and there was no need for steel reinforcement. If ready mix concrete was used, it would have taken up to six weeks.
