Skene Group Supply Rock Armour Stone For Major Sea Defence Project
Monday, March 25th, 2019
A major sea defence project in Fife has now been completed utilising Rock Armour Stone supplied by Skene Group Construction Services Ltd.
The project had a number of very specific requirements on the rock type to be used. Skene Group Construction Services Ltd were able to supply stone that complied with the project specification in the key areas of Density of the stone; sizing of the stone to meet Design Criteria and the Durability of the stone against the harsh coastal environment that it was being deployed.
Joint Managing Director – Mr Andrew Forgan – “This was an interesting project for Skene Group Construction Services Ltd. There needed to be balance delivering the various sizes of Rock Armour Stone to match the design requirements which had a specific methodology on placement of the rock. Due to the size of the Rock Armour both the loading and unloading of the transport is carried out by mechanical excavator’s fitted with specialist handling grab attachments in lieu of the traditional excavator buckets. We were able to develop a planned delivery program which balanced the loading and unloading requirements to match the placement program at the site. Skene Group Construction Services Ltd has built up considerable experience of these types of civil engineering projects over the years and can provide practical assistance to coastal or river defence projects irrespective of scale.”
