Project: RAF Valley - Runway Refurbishment | Client: Northstone and Whitemountain JV | Duration: Jul 2016 - Oct 2016 | Suppliers: Titan Plant Hire Ltd

Scope: Installation of Pavement Quality Concrete (PQC), Wet Lean Concrete (WLC), V Channel and Gatic Slot Drains.


Gill Civil Engineering Ltd (GCEL) was appointed to construct the airfield pavement works using pavement quality concrete (PQC) at RAF Valley on the Isle of Anglesey. GCEL laid 26,075 m2 of 260mm thick PQC and 150 mm thick Wet Lean Concrete, Gatic slot drain, surface V-Channel drainage, along with catch bit and outlet chambers.

A majority of the paving work was programmed to be completed during bolthole (4-week airfield shutdown period). In order to meet the requirement of the project, GCEL mobilised an onsite batching plant which would ensure continuous concrete supply to day and night shifts worked to meet the programme.

Project Completion Date: Oct 2016
