Royal Arsenal Riverside Development in Woolwich… and other News!


Royal Arsenal Woolwich - Phase 9

We recently completed a large foundation package for a new high profile high rise residential development in Woolwich. Due to significant challenges created by the previous use of the site, and a considerable effort for value engineering, we were able to provide a variety of piling solutions to our client all within this one project, saving time and money and the need for procuring multiple subcontracts. Pile types installed on the project were large diameter CFA piles, rotary bored piling techniques, temporary works sheet piling and vibro concrete columns.

Ormeau Avenue Scheme

We have now completed over 140m of pipe jacking trenchless works on our Ormeau Avenue scheme, with a further 50m to still complete. This is the sheet piled launch pit of our first drive under Great Victoria Street in Belfast City Centre.


Smart-Safe Access

We have been trialling access solutions in our Bedfordshire yard to allow flexible, mobile and safe access onto flatbed trailers. The photograph shows the SafeSmart Access solution allowing operatives safe access to load steel mats onto the flatbed lorry. This system offers greater flexibility and time savings over current fixed mean of access, MEWPs and smaller podiums.
