Project Overview

Careys was awarded a complex substructure and superstructure contract adjacent to Waverly Station, Edinburgh. The building is seven storeys high and covers the entire

footprint of the site, which has been overlaid on a series of brick arch vaults. These vaults had to be demolished and a further 2m depth of spoil was removed to make way for the 2 levels of underground car parking. Some 4,000m³ of foam concrete was used to stabilise the vaults left.

More Information

A complex support system of hydraulic props was required to support the contiguous pile

wall that retained the railway tracks. On two of the other excavations, ground anchors were used to tie back the contiguous pile walls. Above the 2 levels of parking are the new

offices for the City of Edinburgh Council.

This is a 5 storey high quality finish concrete frame. The ceilings are formed with a series

of drop beams spanning 14m with the slab spanning between. To add to the aesthetic appearance the concrete was curved from the bottom of the beam to the underside of the slab.

Project Overview

Careys expertise was drawn on by the principal contractor to convince the client that a concrete design using PT slabs would provide significant benefits compared to a structural steel frame when constructing the new Emergency Care Centre in Aberdeen. Benefits

discussed with NHS Grampian included: reduced build programme (4 weeks), increased

insulation and fire resistance properties and a reduced number of support columns

providing floor areas with flexibility of use. The client accepted the advice and Careys was

employed to build the substructure and superstructure works for the 8 storey building

and to provide the design of the PT floor-slabs.

More Information

The substructure works included construction of piles caps, ground beams and under-slab

drainage including an RC basement and RC service tunnels.

The 4 RC cores were constructed using a crane assisted jump-form system in advance of the floor construction. The frame includes both in-situ and precast concrete columns erected as the PT floorslab construction proceeds on a floor by floor cycle.

More Information

The demolition works involved the removal & disposal of 350 tonne of asbestos containing materials and on site processing (recycling) of 20,000 tonnes of arisings,

whilst maintaining designed site specific environmental protection measures.

Careys was then contracted as a lead groundworks contractor, constructing a substantial element of the new European Headquarters of the Royal Bank of Scotland under an

earthworks and drainage package, which required approximately 120,000m3 of earth to be moved on to the site. This earth was required to create a basement for the new HQ.

The development covered a 78 acre site and included 350,000 sq ft office accommodation

with all the new access routes to site also being constructed including; pedestrian and

cyclist routes and bridges. Associated street furniture included a bus stop, a water feature

- clad with black granite from China, and granite benches.

The scope of works included hard landscaping at the offices to create a central area for staff. These works included laying granite set paving and Caithness (Scottish type granite) stone paving, granite kerbed footpaths with resin bound finish, granite steps and

granite cubes were laid to a Bogen pattern. An artificial grass football pitch and basketball

court was built as a leisure facility. Soft landscaping was carried out throughout the

extensive site for the installation of trees, plants and turfed areas. Careys works involved

the preparation and placing of substantial areas of the site including importing soil ready

for planting. Close collaboration, coordination and planning were carried out between Careys and the specialist soft landscaping trade contractor.

Project Overview

Careys are proud to have worked in partnership with Sainbury’s since 1989 on

commissions throughout the UK and Ireland. Our relationship initially developed

through our demolition business; Scudder, which carried out projects to such a high

standard Careys were invited to tender for main works packages. The continued

success of project delivery led to Careys being awarded the design and build/

extension contract for Sainsbury petrol stations, and we have now become a

first tier contractor on the nationwide capital car park and drainage maintenance

package.

More Information

In 1989 we embarked on our 1st major project at London Colney, this external works

package proved to be a shining example of Careys commitment to delivery, almost

halving the programme from 37 weeks to 20 weeks.

As the hypermarket format became more mainstream, other stores were developed

across England, with Careys playing an ever larger role in each project. In 1995

Careys received the first commission to carry out substructure and external

works at a flagship store in Hamilton, Scotland. This was quickly followed by a

rollout programme of stores across the country with Careys undertaking various

commissions.

The larger store format has proliferated since the late 1990s, and Careys has

completed in excess of 200 UK contracts, delivering infrastructure, drainage,

landscaping, roadworks and the construction of superstructures.

Project Overview

Careys was contracted to provide the civil engineering works on sites across Scotland. Careys undertook the concrete and external works on 14 stores, and have additionally

completed resurfacing work for the car park at Dumfries and minor works on the Stirling

store. The stores are generally built on inner city brown field sites which give rise to their

own problems of access, underground obstructions and existing site features.

More Information

The stores are steel framed and clad with pre-cast concrete panels, metal sheeting, curtain walling, or a mixture. Careys role was to construct the foundations and install pre-cast ground beams, retaining walls, and the floor slabs. The average size of a store is 1800m² comprising of power floated warehouse and office accommodation and the remainder sales floor which is usually tiled.

The external drainage works can be constructed around a SUDS system where required; this usually involved the installation of a large Stormcell attenuation tank, backed up with stone filled filter trenches to discharge the water back to ground. The external areas have tarmac circulation routes with block paved parking bays and concrete service yards/ delivery bays. The block paving is laid on no fines aggregate to allow draining back to filter drains.

Project Overview

The initial project undertaken by Careys was to carry out the enabling works. After the successful completion a further project was awarded for the substructure and

superstructure packages of the development which included construction of a 7 storey

commercial and 21 storey residential building. An added challenge to the project was

that works were carried out in a complex inner city environment with the site bordering a

major hotel, residential property and one of the busiest streets in Glasgow City Centre.

Gallery

Case Studies Sector Commercial / Mixed Use Project Anderson Regeneration Project Overview The initial project undertaken

More Information

The enabling works involved the construction of; a 50m long retaining wall, 150m of

6m deep drainage diversion, the exposure and protection of transatlantic fibre optic cables and the placing of 12,000m3 of piling mat. Careys remit for the substructure and

superstructure packages for the commercial building involved the construction of three

32m high reinforced concrete (RC) cores, drainage, pile caps, ground beams (concrete

works consisting of 6200m3 of concrete) and a seven storey steel structure.

The scope of works for the residential building consisted of two number RC cores. The cores were constructed ahead of the RC floors and columns which consisted of twenty-

one storeys covering 645m2 with twenty-three RC columns. Two tower cranes had been erected at 72m high and 76m high using a 500t mobile crane with an extended fly jib to

assist with this phase of works. In order to minimise the crane usage, the structure was constructed with the use of a 66m high static pump to place the concrete. A mixture of sky decking and tables were used for the formwork.

Programme targets of the construction of one storey per week were all achieved. The site

itself created a challenge due to the confined space and inner city location, bordering the

14 storey Marriot Hotel, two 20 storey blocks of council flats and Argyle Street in the city

centre of Glasgow. Working in a sensitive inner city location, health and safety for the

site workers and the public was our greatest concern and traffic management, logistical

planning and restricted site access were a priority.

Frame in the centre of Glasgow. The scope of works included the following; supply and install groundworks, pile caps, drainage, ground slab, concrete frame and core including associated works. Design, supply and installation of suspended concrete slabs including

post tensioning were also carried out by Careys.

This post tension (PT) concrete frame consisted of a 10 storey concrete superstructure, 2

no. concrete cores, (one with 3 no. lift shafts), a car pit to hold 9 no. cars below ground

level and all foundations and below ground drainage.

Gallery

Case Studies Sector Commercial / Office Development Project West Regent Street Project Overview Careys was awarded

More Information

The contract began with the construction of the tower crane base, core bases and car

pit. Core construction progressed while the ground floor slab was constructed followed by the suspended concrete slabs. A panel system that was used to form the soffits of the

suspended slabs with a framed perimeter providing a safe working platform for our PT

contractor; cycle times of between 8 -10 days were typically achieved between floors.

The construction of the suspended slabs was broken down into three pours per level due

to the restrictions caused by PT construction, with a total floor area of 880m2.

Freyssinet were awarded the subcontract for the PT works on site. Cables were

tensioned up to 25% after 1 day, and to 100% after 3-4 days depending on cube results. With PT slabs the concrete is put into compression which means the amount of reinforcement required can be reduced. It also allows greater spans between columns

giving a greater uninterrupted floor area. PT slabs also allow the thickness of concrete slabs to be reduced allowing for a greater height between floors.

More Information

60 ground bearing pad foundations will be constructed around the extent of the construction area. These will support the steel portal frame for the main pool, diving pool and aquatic centre envelopes. A ground bearing slab will also be constructed between the main pool, dive pool and plant room areas in a crescent shape to all of the facilities in the same footprint.

In addition to the construction Careys will undertake the complete drainage package to

provide the foul, surface and treated water networks, some of which will be constructed at up to 6m in depth in saturated sands and gravels. Included within the drainage package will be the construction of a concrete surrounded GRP backwash tank, pumping station and 60m3 surface water attenuation tank.

The pool comprises a 50m long by 25m wide tank to provide ten swimming lanes. To comply with current Olympic standards the tolerances between each of the end walls will

be within +/- 3mm to ensure accurate timing of competitive events. The pool will also contain a state-of-the-art floating floor system (situated at the deep end) which will allow the pool floor level to be adjusted specifically for individual activities.
