NATURAL RESOURCES WALES TREE PLANTING AND MAINTENANCE SCHEME

Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd is proud to have joined forces with Natural Resources Wales on an environmental project at Abergele, Conwy.

NRW is the largest Welsh Government Sponsored Body with a budget of £180million. Formed in April 2013, it has largely taken over the function of the Countryside Council for Wales, Forestry Commission Wales and the Environment Agency in Wales, as well as certain Welsh Government functions.

Commissioned by National Resources Wales, we planted Common Maples, Downy Birches, Common Oaks and White Willow trees along the banks of the River Gele in March 2015. Furthermore, we have been tasked with creating a bespoke maintenance programme spanning the next two years  – ensuring that this newest little piece of natural Wales is given the best start in life.

WEST SHORE, LLANDUDNO

Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd has been contracted as a Tier 2 contractor to the Tier 1 contractor on this £90k scheme to install 5×11 kVa cables for Scottish Power over a 700m route along the West shore network.

The route includes excavations along the public highway and in the grassed verges. A number of large jointing boxes were also constructed.

Due to the nature of the works, detailed planning was required by our site team to ensure minimum disruption to the general public whilst maintaining regular progress of works on the site.

GOLDEN SANDS, KINMEL BAY

This project was assigned to Lawsons following the demise of the original contractor undertaking the works. Works involved major repairs and replacement pipework to the 375mm diameter foul water network serving the west of Rhyl. Due to the reactive nature of this bespoke scheme the design works were extremely complex and the Client and Engineer valued our technical experience input.

The works necessitated working at depths at up to 5.00m. To ensure the total safety of all persons working on the scheme, a specialist sub-contractor was brought in to design a cofferdam and a further specialist sub-contractor placed the sheet piles in position before our specialist teams constructed the dam.

Due to the danger of working in deep manholes, our fully trained and equipped operatives monitored the gas levels in each of the manholes to ensure a safe working environment. We also operated a ‘top man/rescue man’ system at all times and registered all man entries with our head office in Denbigh.
