Gateshead Council is investing almost £4m in solar photovoltaic panels at key sites around Gateshead. We were awarded they groundworks package at the Baltic Business Quarter and Gateshead International Stadium. The groundworks were required to enable the installation of the ground mounted solar photovoltaic systems at the Baltic Business Quarter and Gateshead International Stadium. Both sites underwent site and vegetation clearance and levelling works by cut and fill to achieve the required levels and specified tolerances. A weed protection membrane has been laid along with a stoned surface to the solar array areas. Access roads and hardstanding areas have also been created to house equipment associated with the photovoltaic panels. The remainder of the sites have been prepared for planting to improve biodiversity and natural habitat.
