Case Study: Flex MSE Vegetated Wall - Stream Embankment Reinstatement
Client: Jacks 1 Civil Engineering Ltd
Contractor: HBB Geo Sales (Flex MSE®-Certified Contractors)
Buckie Braes is a popular area for walkers and runners on the outskirts of Perth. After a heavy rainfall part of the burn bank was washed away and Perth & Kinross Council needed a method of repairing the bank. They wanted a natural looking solution which would retain the 20m curved section of the burn and would cope with similar future weather events.
Flex MSE was proposed to Perth & Kinross Council by Consulting Civil Engineers Allen Gordon. Jacks 1 Civil Engineers appointed as the contractor for the approved design. As they had never installed Flex MSE, In less than a month after the initial enquiry HBB Geo sales had supplied the Flex MSE stock to site, supervised installation and hydroseeded the area. The Jacks 1 Civil Engineers team very quickly grasped how easily the product could be installed and in under 2 days the retaining wall was complete. Flex MSE has been used in many similar erosion projects across Scotland and was a perfect solution for Buckie Braes for the following key reasons:
The Flex MSE units were filled within our automated bagging facility and then shipped to site. On completion of installation, hydroseeding was completed within a few days.
Testimonial: Andrew Graham – Site Engineer, Jacks 1 Civil Engineering.
