Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd is delighted to announce the award of Access to Argyll and Bute (A83) Preliminary Ground Investigation works.
This prestigious contract award is the first call-off Lot 2 Multi Supplier Framework Agreement Contract with Transport Scotland amounting to £1.8M.
Set within the famous A83 Rest & Be Thankful pass, the site sits at 245m above sea level and divides Glen Croe and Glen Kinglas. General Wade’s military road, built-in 1753, runs through the site and is overlooked by the Arrochar Alps, including the spectacular and towering mountain peaks of The Cobbler (Ben Arthur) and The Brack.
Site works are scheduled to begin in late February 2022 and run for eight weeks. A large portion of site works involves the recovery of over 1.1km of rock core and will present a good opportunity for the Company to showcase its two new Fraste Multidrill ML Max rotary rigs, which are the latest additions to an already impressive fleet. The high-speed capabilities promise to be well-suited to recover high-quality core within complex metamorphic and igneous lithologies.
The Raeburn team proposed is experienced and diverse, comprising geologists, engineers and supervisors. Harnessing this in-house resource shall help ensure the Ground Investigation is managed and completed safely and successfully.
