The Challenge from the Client
Mobilise quickly and install a sheet pile retaining wall on the side of an embankment with limited access. Installation should be silent and vibration-free. The client already had a design for the sheet piled retaining wall, but it required alteration as the driveability of the piles in the granular soils had not been considered.
The Ivor King Solution
Utilise our Giken pile walker to press in the sheet piles enabled the installation to take place without extensive costly earthworks to level off the sloping ground. Access from one end of the sheet pile wall was all that was required for the heavy lifting of the equipment. Ivor King’s own 70t crawler crane was sited on an engineered hardstanding and serviced the installation.
