Blanchard Wells Structures and Civils has its own groundwork division to support its clients with seamless packages, creating substantial cost and programme savings as well as minimising risk and interface.
Our capabilities include all traditional groundwork activities, ranging from foundations, bulk excavation, earthwork support, all forms of piling, roads and highways, drainage and adoptable connections, services, retaining structures and external works. We are able to manage all these works in-house and react to any situation with all our fleet of owned plant and trained operatives.
Earlier engagement with the main contractor and design team has assisted the project stakeholders to achieving a product that is not only of high quality, built on time, incorporated service voids and penetrations, along with budget constraints. The Blanchard Wells team have developed an open communication process, which develops transparency and collaborative working. Blanchard Wells bring the added benefit of group strengths, groundwork and concrete frames, to deliver a programme that would have been hampered if packages had been split.
Blanchard Wells provide a very professional service, proactive with their approach to work within programme restraints. They have worked on several schemes where the cost plan was over budget. Throughout the value engineering stages Blanchard Wells were extremely helpful to ensure that project savings were made where possible. They have since become a framework contractor to PMC who we use on a regular basis
