Roger Bullivant Limited Uses its Precast Foundation System to Demonstrate Efficiency through MMC

Roger Bullivant Limited (RBL), a leading foundation engineering company, proudly announces the successful completion of the first phase of works at a residential site in Killearn for CALA Homes. The entire project consists of the installation of 1,685 No. Driven Precast Concrete Piles and 5,900lm of RBeam. This achievement not only highlights RBL’s commitment to excellence but also underscores the efficiency gains realised through the adoption of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).

The synergy between RBL’s Driven Precast Concrete Piles and the RBeam system highlights a holistic approach to foundation engineering, where each component complements the other to deliver results. By harnessing the power of MMC, RBL has improved onsite processes, optimising efficiency without compromising on quality.

The project, situated in Killearn, demanded a robust foundation solution to accommodate the development of 89 homes. RBL implemented its in-house designed and manufactured foundation system comprising 200mm square precast piles, strategically chosen for their commercial viability.

“The seamless integration of Driven Precast Concrete Piles and RBeam in Killearn emphasises our dedication to innovation and efficiency,” remarked Gavin Hay, Scotland Area Manager at Roger Bullivant Limited. “Through the application of MMC on this site, we have not only accelerated project timelines but also elevated safety standards and minimised environmental impact.”

Ruairidh Mackinnon, Senior Site Manager at CALA Homes, expressed his satisfaction with the project’s execution, “Roger Bullivant Limited’s Driven Precast Concrete Pile and RBeam system has been a fantastic foundation solution for our site at Killearn. The system offers a robust and time-efficient method of construction which RBL installed in a safe and controlled manner. Quality of workmanship and programme management was continuously monitored by RBL which resulted in the product being completed on time and to the highest standard.”

Driven Precast Concrete Piles offer numerous advantages over traditional methods. Their precision-engineered design ensures consistent performance in diverse ground conditions, such as the sand and silt mixtures prevalent in the Killearn site. When used in conjunction with the RBeam system, these piles provide a robust foundation that promises longevity and structural integrity for the development of CALA Homes.
