On the Hinkley Connection Project we continually strive to find better ways of doing things.  SUREGROUND by Soil Science Ltd is a more sustainable engineering solution for haul roads and laydown areas.  It means fewer lorry movements, less vehicle-related emissions and a reduction in the quantity of aggregate transported onto site.  Fitting the sustainability agenda, it delivers the best results for our customers, the local community and the environment and makes good business sense.

Case Study

Matthew King

SHESQ Manager, National Grid

“The TRUe Project had an option to either construct a traditional compound or use the SUREGROUND™ product.

Our compounds are now hardstanding, durable and maintenance free. These benefits outweighed a traditional build.

What really impressed me was how Soil Science mobilised under short notice and delivered within our timescales.”

Case Study

Logistics Lead, TRUe Alliance

“We have built a 2.4 kilometre haul road and a welfare/laydown compound at Hambleton Junction YO8 9HZ in readiness for the installation of a new Northern Power Grid and Network Rail compound.

We appointed Soil Science as the main sub-contractor to undertake the stabilisation and armouring of the haul road and welfare /laydown.

We found Soil Science to be a very professional company and very helpful from the lads on the ground up to senior management all of the team worked very well and went over and above what was expected of them to complete the works to program.

I found the two managers that were on site were very helpful and came up with good solutions to some of the problems that we faced whilst on the project.

The work ethic of all of the Soil Science operatives was exceptional and adhered to all health and safety requirements imposed on them during the current COVID-19 situation.

As the site manager for the project I will highly recommend that we use Soil Science on future projects that we have coming up doing the same kind of work.”
