Project Details

Our introduction to this client was to quote for a heat pump for a barn conversion that he was having done. Once the survey had been completed and the size of the pump required had been ascertained, the scale of the ground works was explained to him. Realising that we would have to have extensive machinery on site and there would be considerable upheaval, he then asked us to quote for several other projects allied to this heat pump. These were; to move and replant a mature hedge. To create a new driveway to his existing property and to build a drystone wall as boundary to this, doubling as a retaining wall for his lawn. To repair the existing tarmac drive, to the property and to create a new tarmac threshold to the gateway onto this drive. To move the soil from these excavations and to combine it, with the spoil from the heat pump excavations. This total mass of soil was to change the levels of an existing paddock and orchard which was to become the garden of the barn conversion. To achieve this, we moved over 500 tonnes of soil and created a lawn extending to over an acre. Not to mention the various, patios, access tracks and the installation of various new mains services. We also built him a ‘Petanque’ court!

This project was on a very large scale, I was impressed to see that the Grosvenor team did not lose their eye for the little details; in, for instance, the new steps to the old house and the planting of the drystone walled area, in amongst the larger scale bulk materials movement. Although there was a range of skills required, the project was seamless from a customer perspective
