United Kingdom, Tower Bridge One Project London
After 10 years still going strong.
||placing temporary steel pile casings
A 10 years old ICE3120 vibrating piling hammer from specialist equipment hirer Piletec is helping Miller Piling install approximately 1,100 concrete piles on what will be one of the Europe’s most prestigious residential developments: One Tower Bridge.
The Berkeley Homes development will comprise 374 new apartments, plus a cultural centre, retail facilities and a health spa, on the site of a derelict coach-park located between the GLA Headquarters building and Tower Bridge on the South bank of the Thames.
The location, while highly sought-after as an address, has less than ideal ground conditions, being very poor and variable soil down to 10 m with London Clay beneath.
Consequently, piling specialist Miller Piling is required to install a series of reinforced concrete piles in diameters from 750 mm to 1,200 mm to depth of up to 28 m.
To help overcome the risk of the ground collapse during the installation of the rotary-bored piles, Miller is using Piletec's ICE 3120 vibrating hammer to install the temporary steel pile casings.
