If you'd like some more information or would like to discuss a project, just send us a few details and we'll get back to you for a chat.

Noise, vibration, Party Wall Agreements and Section 61 Notices all produce restrictions which have a major influence on the choice of piling solution for any particular site. 

Our unique range of wholly owned and operated piling equipment is capable of installing sheet piles, king posts and bearing piles, able to comply with the most stringent environmental restrictions imposed upon a site.

Our range of Giken Silent Piler and Hydraulic Hydro-Press Systems are our two principal methods of installing sheet piles in a virtually silent and vibration-free mode.  We can combine these installation techniques with pre-augering to enable installation in dense or more cohesive ground conditions. Our Giken Silent Piling rigs can operate in Standard Mode following pre-augering, and with Water Jetting or Super Crush attachments fitted, which utilise water and simultaneous augering respectively to progress piles in dense ground conditions. 

For standard vibro-hammer installation, we can reduce vibration and noise by pre-augering the ground prior to driving sheet piles into loose to medium dense cohesion-less material, or soft to medium stiff cohesive material.

Our ‘real-time’ vibration monitoring systems can be sited at sensitive locations, sending data reports to the piling rig.  Operation of the piling equipment can be tailored to maintain vibration below set limits, conforming to site-wide restrictions.
