SLR acquires Groundwork Plus
by Paul Gardiner
After a number of years in the Planning System, Duntanlich Barite Mine in Perthshire, Scotland, was granted planning consent in 2017.
SLR were subsequently appointed by Schlumberger to commence pre-construction planning and design related support for the mine site access and above ground infrastructure. The 2 stage design process, including procurement of the NEC3 construction contract, early contractor involvement, and discharge of complex pre-construction planning conditions associated with multiple environmental sensitivities attached to the site, was completed in early 2019 with the construction phase and major earthworks phase commencing in Spring 2019.
