WBC are civil engineering and building contractors who have built up a first-class reputation within the groundworks, civil engineering, building and construction industry by successfully delivering high-quality construction projects. We're proud to say that WBC have maintained a strong belief in a strong work ethic, good workmanship, health & safety regulations and a job well done. Whatever the size of your project, our construction teams are aware of the responsibility they have for excellence, safety and respect for the environment. This has recently been acknowledged with the award of our CHAS certificate of accreditation for compliance of current health and safety legislation.
WBC have recently acquired plant and machinery for track restoration which breaks up and crushes existing hardcore access tracks, with pot holes and ruts, into a smooth graded roadway. The existing hardcore material, lumps of brick, concrete and stone, are broken up and crushed to provide an ideal hardcore material which is graded and compacted flat.
Ripper - Rips through and loosens existing surfacing
MeriRoad Crusher - Breaks up existing hardcore material, to an average depth of 150mm. Pulvarises large lumps of hardcore into suitable hardcore material.
Bobcat Grader - Levels the hardcore material and creates a fall away from the centre of the track, or to one side.
Multi-plate Compaction - Hydraulic vibrating plates compact and consolidate the hardcore making it suitable for plant and traffic.

The photos above show the construction of a hydro-electric scheme in Ludlow. Due to the natural beauty of the surrounding area, the aesthetics of the project were very important as well as minimising any environmental impact. An external face of stone was constructed to help the scheme blend in with the old water mill building. WBC are very proud of the construction of this hydro-electric scheme, which provides a source of renewable energy working in harmony with its natural environment.
