Aylesford Reservoir, Kent

Client: J Murphy & Sons
Contract Period:
Completion: April 2012
Aylesford Reservoir, Kent

South East Water constructed a new £2 million covered service reservoir in Aylesford near Maidstone, Kent, to help meet the future demand for water in the area, as well as helping to serve the existing 15,000 customers in Aylesford.

Construction on the new reservoir was completed during the spring of 2012.

Building Aylesford Reservoir requires a huge amount of concrete, so after submitting its tender bid along with three other companies, Gallagher Aggregates Ltd was the successful bidder.

The location of Gallagher Aggregates Ltd, approximately 500 metres from the reservoir site, played a part in its successful bid as the carbon footprint of transporting the large volume of concrete is kept to a minimum and local labour can be employed.

In all, Gallagher Aggregates Ltd supplied approximately 2,500 cubic metres of concrete to the site over the year long project.
