Back on the M6 Stafford Installing Specialised Piled Retaining Walls


25-Nov-2021

It great to be back on the M6 Stafford with our specialist piled retaining walls. Here ZZ46-700 sheet piles are being installed 13.0 metres into weak to medium-strong red sandstone in KSP configuration without the need for impact driving.

To achieve sheet piling to such depth in rock without impact driving we use accurate to depth preauger techniques utilising Cased CFA, and  then vibro drive the piles with powerful ABI 36VV vibro hammers. We can operate both these techniques with the same rig, using ABIs quick docking system to allow safe and easy change over between rig attachments.
