Case Study - Bowmer & Kirkland - Rugby Gateway


Location: Rugby

Sector: Industrial

Project Value: £2.5m

Duration: 29 weeks


Rugby Gateway is a 120-acre prime logistics site located at the heart of the distribution ‘golden triangle’, immediately adjacent to Junction 1 of the M6 motorway.

Our works included:

  • Mass fill bases with mesh reinforcement
  • Storm and foul drainage
  • Attenuation system
  • Footways
  • External works including car park
  • BWIC external services
  • Yard slabs

The foundations were excavated using a Trimble GPS 3D system. The system provides real-time information for monitoring avoidance zones and simultaneously collects as-built data as the machine cuts to grade.

With these capabilities, operators can minimise waste and see precisely where dirt is being moved on site. They can also keep tighter control over safety as there is no need for a banksman to be near the machine or open excavation.
