Cofra have commenced work on improving the gound at the new UK Battery Industrialisation Centre in Coventry. Cofra's works are to compact an area of historic landfill which covers an area of approximately 20,000m2. The landfill lies partly beneath the building and some of the external yard areas. The objective of the compaction is to reduce and long term settlement and significantly reduce the risk of voids in the landfill material. The flood slab of the building is to be piled in the location of the landfill and the compaction of this zone will help to make the design of the piling platform more efficient.
