J K Ashbrook Ltd have been involved in a variety of Civil Engineering projects recently the most high profile of which have been our road building projects. These have involved us widening junctions, building culverts, installing retaining walls alongside rivers, over pumping reservoirs, and installing several new bypasses. Acting as a multi-disciplinary sub-contractor J K Ashbrook Ltd undertake earthworks, drainage and sub-base operations eliminating the interface between sub-contractors making our sites run more productively and efficiently and saving everyone time and money.

We have experience of installing both pipe and box culverts, headwalls and tie in joints to associated retaining walls. Recently we installed 100m of prefabricated retaining wall panels which due to the restricted working area had to be installed by a zero swing 25T excavator.

On our most recent project we have being using the ‘Easi-Pit’ system of prefabricated manholes. These increase productivity in drainage gangs as they eliminate the need for pouring a separate base slab which then sterilises the work area for a day and slows operations.



J K Ashbrook Ltd are experienced in all forms of Civil Engineering from bulk earthworks to deep drainage and from roadbox construction to culverts.
