Client: Taylor Woodrow (Vinci Construction UK Ltd)
Principal Contractor: Crossrail
Value of contract: £100,000
Description of Works:
Supply and installation of steel sheet piles to form a permanent retaining wall at Ealing Broadway station as part of the Crossrail West Stations project. Silent & vibration free piling methods were used to best cater to the ground conditions and surrounding environment.
12 metre long interlocking sheet piles were installed during a weekend possession using a Giken F301 in Supercrush mode for silent & vibration free installation in a densely populated residential and commercial area. We used a 200t mobile crane to place the Giken on the piles and fit its 19.65 metre long auger, as well as to service it during installation.
A possession of the two lines nearest the works allowed us to work in shifts around the clock so that the works were complete in one weekend with minimal disruption to service.
