Project description

Cravencroft was appointed by Allports Group in 2022 to construct a new 5 acre concrete yard facility to the rear of Allports' existing office and workshop facility in Lichfield - doubling their site from 5 to 10 acres in total. 

We carried out a cut and fill exercise across the site followed by a new site wide surface water drainage installation including Aco Q max channels through the site and the installation of a 30,000 litre oil bypass separator tank.

Once the drainage and the sub base installation were complete, we commenced with the concrete bay installation; the concrete bay installation provides Allports with much needed additional lorry parking as well as 2 locations to the perimeter of the site for the installation of 2nr Portakabin buildings serving as a new rental facility and group sales facility.

The remainder of the works consisted of perimeter fencing around the site including new access and egress gates to the northern and southern boundaries of the site; lamp column and exterior lighting installation to the new yard facility and soft landscaping to the perimeter of the site.
