Four Ashes | CFA Piling | Grouting | Keller UK

Four Ashes, Wolverhampton

  • The project

Keller were employed to install a combination of 600m diameter hard and soft piles to an average length of 11m to construct a basement for a new manufacturing facility .  Over 500 linear metres of secant wall were completed. Keller also did all the setting out and provided the attending excavator for the works. 

  • The challenge

The greatest risk identified was the founding strata was weak rock. Production rates and the rig selection were critical for the successful completion of these works. Keller were able to offer a Soilmec SR80 which was able to achieve the production rates required to attain contract programme duration.

  • The solution

As Keller had early involvement on this scheme, we were able to work in partnership with the project designer and the principal contractor to fully establish the parameters required and therefore provide a solution which was fully compliant with the client’s technical and commercial needs.
