TRADITIONAL BASE/BINDER COURSE IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION
Please click here to view full RFQ
Since our company’s founding in 1975, Dowhigh Ltd. has operated as a family-run corporation
under private ownership. We deal with a variety of local authorities and private clients
throughout the North-West of the UK from our base in Bootle, Liverpool.
We provide a broad variety of highway infrastructure and civil engineering specialties completed
through a combination of our abilities and expertise as a prominent force in the North-West
The company is looking to set up a facility to produce Dowfoam, which is our bespoke foamed
mixed bitumen product that is a sustainable alternative for base/binder course material. The
product is made up of 95% recycled materials and has significantly lower carbon emission
compared to traditional asphalt-based base and binder material.
The project is to be split into three sections:
Phase 1 – Purchase bespoke plant that produces foamed-mix bitumen and conduct a plant trial
in Hawthorne Road, Bootle.
Phase 2 – Start commercial production of Dowfoam in collaboration with various councils as our
clients in the North-West.
Phase 3 – Conduct research and development on the product to make the product carbon
We expect the project to commence no later than 10th of June, 2023 to the 31st of July, 2023.
Indicative Budget – Cost control is essential for the project and the costs are expected to be
between £190,000 and £350,000 depending on the specification of the plant and the speed of
