Grafton Merchanting trading as Buildbase Civils are a dedicated civils & utilities merchant with technical & knowledgeable staff located at all of our 19 branches in England & Wales. Our branches stock an extensive range of civil materials for collection or delivery.
Our fully trained and qualified drivers carry out a range of deliveries, from crane offloading to pallet deliveries and our fleet is large and diverse enough to cater for your needs. We have developed strong relationships with all the key manufacturers within the industry which include Emtelle , Polypipe and Naylor.
We have supplied an extensive range of utility and civil materials to various wind farms and hydro scheme projects over the past few years including a job in Alladale Hydro, Ardgay,Sutherland.
This is an example of a Hydro Scheme which presented access and restrictions for the supply of products.
Buildbase Civils were involved at an early stage with meeting the Project Team and discussing proposed materials for the scheme. At this stage we enlisted the assistance of our preferred manufacturer of ductile iron pipework to contribute some value added engineering to the job. Working together we redesigned the pipework layout and then supplied the full pipeline requirements which included 500m x en598 ductile iron in addition all the intake structure materials. There was no laydown area suitable for artic vehicles therefore we arranged an alternative offload point where the artic vehicles from France (on timed delivery) met with rigid wheelers and transhipped their loads to stage 2 where a helicopter finally assisted with the delivery of the materials.
