Basements of Sheet Piling Group

The use of sheet piling, box piles and high modulus piles in basements provide a factory quality product of known structural integrity that fulfil the requirements for minimum construction time. Not only can piles be driven rapidly in the majority of soil types, they are also capable of being loaded immediately, which is a distinct advantage in fast-track construction projects.

By adopting sheet piling and/or box piling for basement walls, construction space is minimised and because the wall is installed prior to soil excavation, adjacent buildings can be more reliably supported, thereby preventing potential subsidence. Piles can be driven close up to a land boundary; this means that land usage can be maximised. As wall construction time is less than for concrete walls, associated site costs can be reduced.

In this environmentally conscious age, sheet piling have the added benefit because they can be easily extracted at the end of their purpose and can be re-used or re-cycled.
