Earthworks Specifications

On sites that are to be filled or raised, Ruddlesden geotechnical is able to produce earthworks specifications, in accordance with BS 6031:2009: Code of Practice for Earthworks, for both site-won and imported materials, to ensure that the filled/ earthworks structure is suitable for its proposed end use.

Normally using information from a material re-use suitability assessment, Ruddlesden’s earthworks specifications will normally include classification of materials, testing of materials, treatment, excavation, deposition, compaction and validation.
