Geo Guernsey Deliver on Private Development

Geo Guernsey Deliver on Private Development

Negotiated via Teams during Guernsey’s lockdown 2, Geo are delighted to have recently handed over the basement, piled substructure and drainage scheme to an appreciative main contractor client on a large private housing development in the Village du Putron area of the Island.

Geo engaged early in the design development process to work in a pro-active and collaborative manner with Ravenscroft Construction, Engineer CBL, Architect PF&A and Quantity Surveyor Davies Associates. This can-do attitude was continued on site with Contracts Manager Maarten Angenent leading a highly skilled Team including the excellent Foreman Chris Beale, James Robinson and Martin Buddle. Geo’s drainage squads provided first-rate assistance as required with civils team members Fred, Mickey and Aiden also seeing the substructure works through almost from day 1.

The eye-catching location of the site will afford the ultimate client a beautiful panorama of Herm, although the single track privately owned road leading to the house certainly gave rise to a few logistical headaches! Neighbourhood diplomacy was also very much in evidence.

Maarten said, “Deliveries and concrete pours were sometimes tricky, with co-operation from the local residents a key factor in the project’s success”.

Geo effectively took over the site following demolition of the previous property and delivered once again on a multi-discipline civils build.
