Earthworks Specification, Devon

Following a materials suitability assessment, Ruddlesden geotechnical produced an earthworks specification for the proposed material movements at a residential development site in Paignton.

The specification summarised suitable and unsuitable materials present (based on the findings of the materials suitability assessment) and provided details of how to excavate, stockpile and deposit the materials. Guidance on the testing requirements (to confirm the material was suitable for placement/ conformed to those suitable materials detailed within the specification) was also provided.

Ruddlesden geotechnical also carried out the earthworks testing for this project.
