Our customer is a high quality building contractor offering an excellent service to private and commercial customers in the Manchester and Cheshire areas. Qube Spaces insist on the best outcomes for their client and act with integrity at all times, attributes that fit well with our own standards.

8 Thornway is an exciting new build development in Bramhall and we were approached to complete the groundworks package including foundation, ground floor slab and drainage. The site has clay sub soils resulting in deeper than usual, stepped footings and the need for protection from the risks of clay heave. The site also suffers from restricted access complicating construction methods and limiting the area available for the storage and handling of all products and materials.

Working to detailed structural and architectural drawings we worked with the site engineer to ensure compliance with specification and all health and safety targets. We provided a full service to the client to excavate to reduced levels, dig and pour foundations before laying a structural ground floor slab over a clayboard void former. Works were completed under budget and to programme despite the terrible weather we encountered during our time on site.

  • I just wanted to pass on to you how happy we are with the job that Tommy and the boys have done. I know the uneven heights of the ponds and the timescale was problematic, but the finish that we’ve ended up with is I think really exceptional. So nice to see people really taking pride in what they are doing.
