Client: Abbey Pynford handling for client
Purpose: Underpin corner of house to sewer leaking creating running sands
Ground Conditions: Running sands clay
Pile Type: 76r
Additional Work: Install underpin brackets
Completed: March 2016
This project suited screwpiles due to its minimal disruption.
We only needed to achieve access to the underside of the footing by 350mm in a small pocket local to the pile.
As the pile is loaded by the use of an 8ton jack this eliminates movement immediately.
This low vibration, low noise, fast system proved a success.
The pile installation took 2 days and was ready to backfill and pave.
