New Waste Recycling Centre for LeicesterProjects
Leicester City Council opened their new £3m waste recycling centre in spring 2015.

Client: GF Tomlinson were the main contractor on this 6 month contract and DAB undertook all the earthworks, drainage and roadworks.

Point of interest: Due to the close proximity to the DAB HQ, it was great to offer GF Tomlinson the use of our office space as site office and client meeting room and being able to monitor progress and safety of the development from our office windows.

Massive Warehouse Expansion for DHL at EMAservices2
DHL are investing £38 m in order to double their warehouse size at the East Midlands Airport.

Client: The main-build contract was won by GSE and they appointed DAB to do the ground works.  The old car park was removed and replaced by our experienced teams of ground-workers and machine operators.  A new large concrete vehicle loading area was installed by DAB. Foundations, drainage and service trenches were also laid by us.  The contract value to date for DAB is just under £12 m.

Point of Interest: As this is a high security it is essential that all personnel working on the air-side should be fully cleared with DBS.  Working in close proximity to aeroplanes also entails specific induction issues which includes a conscientious adherence to rules regarding contaminants – Foreign Object Entry (FOE).

This project was completed in the summer of 2017.
