Roger Bullivant Limited Celebrates Milestone Achievement with Completion of First Foundation Package for Dandara Scotland

Roger Bullivant Limited (RBL), a leading ground engineering company, is delighted to announce the successful completion of its first Foundation Package for Dandara Scotland at its Foxhall Gait development in Kirkliston.

This landmark project involved the installation of 120 No x 200mm Driven Precast Concrete Piles and 530 linear meters of precast RBeam. The piles were driven to the designed length into the underlying stiff gravelly clay, ensuring a robust and stable foundation that meets the design specifications.

Brian Farmer, Senior Engineer at Dandara Scotland, acknowledged the supportive approach and expertise provided by RBL:  “As a housebuilder committed to quality building processes, it was a pleasure to work with foundation specialists at Foxhall Gait.

“The supportive approach and input at the front end for the designs; guidance and collaboration to cover all elements from site investigation to the mat extents and testing requirements was very much appreciated to help assist us value engineer and manage costs. We now have all the design and as-built information signed off from our warranty provider too which is a great position to be in considering we haven’t finished the slabs on the plots yet.”

Premier Guarantee, the warranty provider for this project, played a crucial role in ensuring that all design and construction practices met the highest standards in line with Dandara’s requirements. Their review and approval process provided an independent assurance that the foundations were built to a high standard.

Steven Shiells, Site Manager at Dandara Scotland, also expressed his satisfaction with the project’s execution. He added:  “We were very pleased with the foundation work that took place at our Kirkliston site. The operatives on site all worked well with our groundworks contractor and the outcome is some very solid foundations for our new homes, ready for a quality build.”

RBL’s team worked closely with Dandara Scotland, providing crucial support from the initial design phase through to the completion of the project. This collaborative approach ensured that all elements were covered, from site investigation to testing requirements, resulting in a seamless and efficient construction process.

Gavin Hay, Scotland Regional Manager at Roger Bullivant Limited, commented on the successful collaboration, “We are thrilled to have completed our first project providing a comprehensive foundation solution for Dandara Scotland. This project highlights our commitment to delivering high-quality solutions and our ability to work seamlessly with our clients. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Dandara and delivering more foundation work at its developments throughout Scotland.”

The successful completion of this project marks a significant milestone for RBL as it continues to build on its excellent reputation and expertise in the Scottish market. The team looks forward to many more successful collaborations with Dandara Scotland and other partners in the region.
