Utilising a Viking hammer attachment and 30 Tonne Komatsu tracked machine, FK Lowry completed a total precast foundation package in a new housing development in Belfast.
Tolland House Properties Ltd required a complete foundation and precast subfloor system to be installed for a total of 9 new houses due to poor ground conditions. The works included the installation of 127No 270 x 270mm precast piles, 350 x 350mm ground beams, 500m2 of precast floor units and 13 dynamic tests were carried out.
FK Lowry have utilised their Pond Park facility and carried out the above works using minimal subcontracts and liaising closely with the clients architects and providing technical advice to insure that the contract conforms to stringent NHBC and local building control requirements.
After a successful phase one, FK Lowry has been awarded phase two which will commence in March 2013.
