Basement Remedial Civil Repair Works

Basement Remedial Civil Repair Works

After a successful tender Woodenbale 2000 ltd carried out remedial repairs to the basement area of the old power station. The area had not been utilised within the new power station, but due to it being open to the elements the lower section fills with rain water and requires pumping to empty.
