Project Description

As part of the phase five expansion of their diesel generating electricity plant, The British Virgin Islands Electricity Corporation tendered works for bulk earthworks into an existing slope situated above the western boundary of the site. Development of the site included a stabilization system consisting of passive ground anchors (soil nails) with installed length ranging from 1m- 4m, installed on a grid of approximately 2m x 2m. The face of the cut was stabilized using rockfall protection mesh.

The work included detail unit pricing from productions, crew buildup, equipment resources, and indirects. Besides supplier pricing, research for drilling equipment was conducted.
