November 13, 2023

Steve Vick International, a renowned expert in innovative engineering for trenchless renovation and decommissioning of pipes on a global scale, is proud to announce their recent collaboration with industry leader Balfour Beatty on a substantial project at the M25, A3 Junction 10, commissioned by Highways England. The project involved diverting a gas main to facilitate road widening, a complex undertaking that required a wealth of expertise. Steve Vick International’s Contracting Services team stepped up to the challenge, bringing their unrivalled knowledge of grouting works to the forefront.

Grouting works are a fundamental component in projects that involve the sealing of abandoned pipework and voids. In this case, the Steve Vick International team was entrusted with the intricate task of grouting a 630mm pipe inside a 1200mm sleeve, expertly filling the annulus along a 90 metre stretch of the gas main. Their dedication, expertise, and commitment to excellence were instrumental in the successful completion of this project. Ultimately, their contribution led to the enhancement of road infrastructure and safety while ensuring uninterrupted gas supply to customers.

Steve Vick International is widely recognised as an expert in grout filling of abandoned pipework and voids. Their highly skilled team specialises in delivering cost-effective solutions, saving both time and resources. Their range of pipe sealants is purposefully designed for sealing off redundant pipes and voids, whether accessed directly or remotely, making them the preferred choice for complex projects like the M25, A3 Junction 10 project.

One of their key products, ENDSEALS, plays a pivotal role in preventing reinstatement slump. By expertly sealing off the annular space, they eliminate the risk of backfill infiltrating the gap and causing surface slumping. Furthermore, their remote application through gravity-fed grout rigs significantly reduces disruptions, making them an ideal choice for projects in sensitive locations. Their capabilities extend to filling from a distance of up to 150 metres, ensuring that even the most challenging projects can be executed with precision.

Sion Roberts, a representative from Balfour Beatty, expressed their satisfaction with Steve Vick International’s services, stating, “The support provided by Steve Vick International was instrumental in the success of the M25, A3 Junction 10 project.
