PCL working with Western Power

Posted: January 30, 2014 at 4:52 pm


2014 kicked off with a bang as we were already completing several contracts. The first completion was for Western Power Distribution in Huthwaite

Our contract consisted of:

  • The excavation and removal of 350m2 of tarmac and underlying spoil.
  • The formation of the new vehicle concrete hardstand which included
  • Installation of 240m3 of clean type1, compacted in layers and 100 linear meters of new kerbs
  • And 90m3 of Air entrained C40 concrete with fibres
  • We also constructed a 6m x 6m in-situ concrete bund for the safe future storage of the old WPD equipment

After being hit with bad weather conditions, PCL still undertook and finished the work within 3 weeks. Our clients were extremeley satisfied with the way that PCL worked on site, as well as this PCL caused no disruption to the vehicle access to the distrubution centre.


PCL Complete Costa Coffee Contract

Posted: November 21, 2013 at 10:51 am

Local groundworks company, Principal Contracting Limited have recently finished working on the new Costa Coffee outlet on Chilwell Retail Park on behalf of building contractors Marshalls. PCL were hired by Marshalls to complete the labour, plant and materials for the project. As per usual, PCL completed the work in a professional and efficient and manner with Health and Safety being at the forefront of all their work. With the retail park being open to the public whilst the work was being completed, PCL were able to adapt to the constraints and complete the work on time showing vast experience in dealing with such environments.

The site manager was full of praise for their work and “would have no hesitation in working with them in the future” so hopefully this would be the first of many jobs PCL will complete for Marshalls.

Principal Contracting work with Stent House Foundations

Posted: July 26, 2013 at 10:23 am

We have recently completed some work on behalf of Stent House Foundations for one of the UK’s biggest House builders, Morris Homes. PCL were awarded 2 jobs for Morris Homes, one in Oldbury and the other in Peterborough. Both involved the Stent House Foundation pre-cast foundation system of which PCL are approved installers.

We managed under very challenging conditions to complete both contracts before the scheduled program date and to budget, PCL again producing some top class Civil Engineering and we are hoping that the great working relationship between SHF and PCL will continue for many years to come.
