The Dew Piling Team has just completed a 60 meter permanent sheet piled wall in the center of Bournemouth on the South coast of England.
The £80,000 contract was awarded by main contractor Morgan Sindall. These works will kick start the regeneration of this whole area by the Bournemouth Development Company.
The 100No 9 meter long sheet piles which were taken from Oldham stock were installed within 1 week by Dew’s ABI 14/17v Resonance Free Rig after 3 days pre-auger of the dense gravels. Driving piles thereafter through the loosened material proved very successful in that the noise and vibration levels for the surrounding properties and their owners remained within acceptable limits.
