Contiguous pile walls are installed using rotary bored or CFA techniques. This type of retaining wall is constructed with close spaces between adjacent piles and are used on a range of engineering projects such as ground stabilisation, underpasses and basement walls.
The small footprint area of the Martello Piling rigs combined with their light weight make them particularly suitable for the construction of bored pile retaining walls, where access room is restricted or the additional rig weight could cause instability to an existing slope, or impose additional unwanted load in adjacent structures or services.
Despite the small size of Martello’s piling rigs, piled walls of up to 1050mm diameter can be constructed in areas where bigger conventional piling rigs are physically unable to operate.
Working closely with our design partners we have the ability to create efficient bored pile wall solutions as a cost-effective solution to your earth retaining requirements.
The Cross Rail tunnel boring machine was to commence it's drive at Lords Hill Bridge, passing directly underneath it.
