Working Platforms

Working platforms are used to provide a safe and durable surface from which heavy plant such as piling rigs and cranes can operate. The specific design of a working platform can vary greatly dependant on a number of factors including underlying soil conditions, loading requirements and type of granular soil. Geosynthetics in house Civil Engineers provide technical recommendations and preliminary calculations for working platforms, ensuring the most economic construction every time.

Within the technical recommendation Geosynthetics Engineers will consider the positioning, availability of existing site won materials and bearing capacity required in order to provide the best possible solution.  A working platform will typically feature Tenax high modulus geogrids in conjunction with Ekotex non-woven geotextiles to stabilise the granular material ready for use. Having a range of Geogrids and geotextiles available from stock allows Geosynthetics Limited to design and deliver the best possible solution very quickly.
