Pouring success

The first concrete has been laid as the construction of Harwell Site’s new Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) store gets underway.

Trant Engineering Ltd was awarded the contract to design and build the store in August 2015 and the foundations, which comprise 325 concrete piles of up to 0.6m diameter and 12m deep, have already been completed.

Construction of the steel reinforcement cages and shuttering of the base slab has progressed well and now around 5o lorry movements will be needed to complete the concrete surface ready for the store construction.
