Key aims and challenges

Donaldson Timber Engineering is the largest independent timber engineering company in the UK, supplying joists, trusses, roofing and flooring systems for construction and housebuilders. DTE serves the Midlands from the site in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. 

The existing yard was excavated and a new 1,000m2 storage yard constructed in four sections, comprising concrete hardstandings and gravel storage areas.

A SUDS drainage system was installed, comprising sub-base filter drainage into perforated UPVC pipes. New manholes were constructed and the system connected the existing Severn Trent Water sewer.


How did we do?

D&W worked closely and proactively with Donaldson and their project managers Henderson Surveying to ensure that the business continued to operate as normal whilst works were ongoing. The works were sequenced so as to allow the maximum amount of stock storage space to be available at any given time.
