M6 J13-15 SMP £335 million pound scheme, and other news


M6 J13-15 Smart Motorway Project

We have been busy on the M6 J13-15 SMP where we have installed the sheet piling for the 1st of 6 phases in this £335 million pound scheme. We utilised 3nr ABI TM22 rigs to complete the works, installing sheet piles up to 12m into weak sandstone to allow the conversion of the existing 3 lane motorway to a 4 lane ALR smart motorway.

Olympic House Development, Belfast

Its great to be back in Belfast's Titanic Quarter where we are completing some enabling works, bearing piles and RC works for the first phase of the Olympic House development. We have a long history of works in this part of Belfast, having completed all of the piling for Titanic Belfast, PRONI, Abercorn Residential Complex and Citi Groups Gateway Building to name a few, and are looking forward to seeing a new chapter of redevelopment in the area.

Bedford Square Phase 2, Belfast

We are currently on the Bedford Square Phase 2 project installing secant piles and load bearing piles for a new 17 storey office building with basement excavation up to 7m for client McAleer & Rushe. Piles are ranging in length up to 28m and are up to 750mm in diameter and are installed in close proximity to the listed Ewart building, which is the only remaining part of the former Ewart’s linen manufacturing complex, dating from the late 1800’s. The photos show the piling for an extension to the original building installed in 1937, and the piling for the new secant wall. Where they clashed with new pile positions, old timber piles were cored out by our Cased CFA system as part of the contract works.
