Civil Engineering

A civil engineering contractor that exceeds expectations, every time.

Your Infrastructure Partner of Choice

Years of quality Civil Engineering experience and buildability know how, along with truly collaborative working, will always offer the best solution and value for each project. Example projects include:

Katherine Warington School, Harpenden

Multi-million-pound contract to create a new entrance to a new school, including lowering the existing bank to facilitate construction, vast diversion of services and widening of the current carriageway.
The scheme also included 22 peripheral upgrade projects on the local infrastructure to facilitate the increase in traffic movements, as well as provide a safe route for the public foot traffic. The scope included: Earthworks, specialist excavation, raising and lowering services, surfacing works and junction improvements, street lighting, drainage and signage.

Island Road

Construction of a new 1.5km road included footways, drainage and street lighting.
We built up the carriageway to 700mm in places to remove areas prone to severe water holding. We worked in close partnership with the designer throughout all phases, including a re-design and incorporation of additional features. We maintained access for Thames Water and the Violia landfill site. We also linked the works with other specialists on site to better utilise the existing Traffic Management set up, preventing future disruption for the public.

Cherry Orchard Tram Lines

Three month replacement of tram rail lines and traffic signals, replacing and realigning the footway pavings and kerbs in a challenging urban environment and multiple contractors.
Scope of the works included new kerb lines, rail, signage, traffic signals, ducting and lighting had to be completed. This was a three-month project which included a nine-day full closure of the tram line involving three contractors to break the back of the programme of works (Volker Rail, Siemens Traffic Signals and Associated Asphalt). The area is in the middle of Croydon on a busy junction, crossroads, with Tram HQ / Council Office on one corner and hotel on another corner and police on a third corner. Other challenges included working in small public areas and delivering materials to site daily in small quantities, restricted working, and multiple shallow buried services. “To say it worked well would be a massive understatement… I personally did not envisage such an undertaking would go as smooth as it did... yet it has set a standard all should be proud of, a massive well done and I don’t think I can capture in words, how well it was done.” Patrick Murphy, Interface Manager, Transport for London.

Quality of Service

Competent, trained and skilled operational teams deliver quality workmanship using well-maintained plant and quality materials, managed via a comprehensive externally audited and accredited Quality Management System. Exceptional management and leadership teams work closely with every client to exceed expectations.

Timely hand back is crucial for key infrastructure routes and operational airfields. Our teams hand back on time, every time; minimising disruption and ensuring a positive perception from all stakeholders.

Delivering schemes for £50bn Crown Commercial Services Construction Framework

Gaining a place on this framework has cemented Associated Asphalt place in the UK’s Civil Engineering contracting industry.

The public works framework is estimated to be worth £50bn over seven years and will be available for use by central Government departments and all other public sector bodies, including local authorities, blue light services and devolved bodies. It is the first government-led construction agreement which can be used by the whole public sector.

Sam Ulyatt, Commercial Director, Buildings at CCS said: “This new agreement provides a solid foundation for public sector bodies to achieve the best outcomes and value for their investment across the whole construction lifecycle. The principles of this agreement are collaboration and integration with supply chains, boosting innovation at a critical time and supporting the government’s work towards achieving a zero carbon 2050 target.”
