Road Construction- Menhyr Park, Carbis Bay, Cornwall

Download Case Study

August 2021

Overview

Road construction project.

Material Specification
1,500+ tonnes of SHW 600 6N

Client
Xcav8

Construction

IBAA 6N was supplied from our Blue Phoenix Cornwall Plant at St Dennis.

The material has been used as both Capping and Subbase at varying depths of between 500mm to 2500mm total thickness, but not greater than 1000mm as an average across the site. The road was constructed with the material being compacted in 150mm layers.

Benefit

IBAA is an extremely cost-effective material when compared to Primary Aggregates and BP UK is working towards a verified Carbon Footprint.

There are also advantages logistically when using IBAA due to the low density of the material allowing for fewer vehicle movements as this gives volumetric advantages over primary materials.
