Our Solutions

Horse manege

Equine facilities require reliable, hard wearing surfaces that are cushioned to protect a horses joints, tendons and shoes.

That’s where our solutions can be of assistance. The selection of the correct geotextile grade is critical to the long-term performance. In addition, the construction of any new area should be designed to ensure positive drainage without the potentially harmful clogging of the pores within the geotextile layers.

The construction of walkways, parade areas, rings and much more is incredibly simple with our systems, and they are perfectly suited to forming to any required shape.

Horse manege

We recommend FasTrack woven geotextiles are used between the subgrade and sub-base layers. Multitrack non-woven geotextiles should be used beneath the sand layer above the granular sub-base.

As a guide, we suggest the following product specifications for the non-woven layer:

For guidance only, please contact us about your project-specific designs.

IMPORTANT POINTS TO CONSIDER

  • Ensure the equestrian sand used has a low clay content, as this will impede drainage.
  • As the thickness (and mechanical properties) of the geotextile used increases, the rate of permeability becomes progressively lower.

Supporting tender bids

We’re an advocate of early engagement because if a Geoworks engineering manager is engaged at the tender stage, the impact on the savings to reduce time and money can also assist contractors in winning tenders.

Another benefit of early engagement is that geogrids can be manufactured to the exact width that the contractor needs, suiting the site-specific requirements and creating an even more cost-effective grid. Simply removing a longitudinal overlap in the geogrid layout can save a further 10 per cent in product costs alone. Small changes but big savings are available.

However, all isn’t lost if engagement comes afterwards as savings can still be introduced.

Cumnock SWS Power Line Upgrade

The Scottish Government has set a major target to generate Scotland’s electricity from renewable energy. As the existing network does not have sufficient capacity to cope with the level of demand, a new transmission network was required. The South West Scotland Connections Project will play a key role in helping Scotland meet its renewable energy goals.

Chelsea Garden Project

The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth in London is one of the UK’s largest independent charitable hospitals. This project involved a need to solve the design constraints for the relocation of a Chelsea Flower Show garden to a hospice, on part of the hospital site. We provided geosynthetics products, and our experts led on-site product installation supervision to devise innovative solutions.
