Blue Phoenix UK were chosen to construct a hard-standing foundation pad to enable vehicles to perform their operations safely on even ground.
A 300mm layer of IBAA sub-base was placed with a second 300mm layer added which was lightly watered; 160kgs per M3 of cement was then rotated into this layer creating a temporary in-situ HBM.
IBAA is an extremely cost effective material when compared to Primary Aggregates and BPL is working towards a PAS 2050 compliant Carbon Footprint and will strive for Carbon Trust verification once the project is complete.
The aggregates produced will be carbon neutral using data available from Europe and UK sources.
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.
