Collaborative design pays off at Durleigh WTW


15-Jun-2020

Here are a few photographs of our secant wall box in Somerset now that the excavation works have been completed to formation level. We have been working with our client Wessex Water and designer AECOM - Water to implement the use of preinstalled Ancon Shear Connectors within the secant wall to eliminate the requirement to dowel into the piles upon excavation with the aim of significantly reducing risks from Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). DAWSON-WAM were heavily involved in taking this innovative proposal from design to construction, whereby the connectors were fixed to the steel reinforcing cages prior to installation within the pile.
