Permanent retaining walls utilising sheet piling are used on schemes large and small, from simple projects to complex slope stabilisation solutions. They offer cost effective alternatives to contiguous and secant concrete walls. They may be designed to both retain temporary excavations and to act as the permanent retaining structure, often in conjunction with the base slab which offers propping to the wall. Sheet piling walls are commonly used in service yards of commercial and retail sector developments, flood defence schemes, bridge abutments and boundary walls. Sheet piling retaining walls have distinct advantages over concrete contiguous and secant walls. Besides being more cost effective, they require no curing time before excavations can commence, thus allowing shorter programmes.
As a company who specialise in Sheet Piling, our work revolves around certain key construction features: steel intensive and permanent basements; permanent retaining walls; temporary sheet piling; conventional and marine sheet piling; steel bearing pile foundations; and temporary and permanent anchors. Our methodologies include the use of techniques such as silent, vibration-free piling and telescopic leader rigs, as well as conventional driving equipment.
Through close relations with clients, developers and principle contractors, our sheet piling team are able to help develop successful projects, built on reliable and relevant methodologies, whether these relate to permanent installations or temporary ones. We will address each project and suggest alternative approaches if it appears to us that a project would benefit from a different approach and we can save the client time, money and hassle, buy offering an expert view on how a job could be tackled in a more appropriate manner.
