The ICE Essex Branch kindly invited us to provide a site visit for its members. On 8 July 2015 nineteen people visited our site in Shoreditch, in the London Borough of Hackney where we were constructing CFA bearing piles and a secant wall for Galliard Homes.
With three storeys below ground as well as the five storeys above ground over three hundred 600mm diameter piles were required to facilitate the excavation. The attendees heard from us about the project's constructin methodolgy, design parameters, safety and risk management.
They were then able to see large equipment close up, get inside the rigs cab and view its operating software.
When we were done on site we enjoyed some food, drink and networking opportunities at the "Well and Bucket".
