GDL goes back to school in Aberdeen

Portlethan schoolScottish-based ground improvement specialist Ground Developments Ltd has began work on a new primary school project in Portlethen, Aberdeen.

The firm has started the ground improvements on a project to deliver the new Hillside Primary School for Farrans who are the main contractor.

The project is a northern Hub project and is one of a number of schools that GDL has worked on in the north-east of Scotland for a variety of main contractors.

GDL is using its expertise to deliver a very high specification soil stabilisation and bulk earthworks programme within a tight programme of just six weeks due to the complex nature of this project.

Andy Warneford, projects director for GDL, said: “We are fully operational on the new primary school project in Portlethan. The topsoil strip is already underway, and we will cut and fill the site to design levels in order to meet the complex specification of this project that sees the school on a split-level with a two metre difference between the levels.”
