At the end of last week, our Cementation Skanska team finished piling works at the Woking Victoria Square project. This new development will include retail units, hotel and residential accommodation and underground parking when completed.
The project was split over two phases, starting mid-August 2017 and finishing early this month.
Project Director, Graeme Mitchell, said: “We installed 442 Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) piles to a maximum depth of 26 metres with diameters ranging between 600 and 900mm. As part of the programme, we were also required to plunge reinforcement cages to a depth of 8m.
“To overcome this challenge, the site team worked together with our fabrication team at Bentley Works which designed and fabricated a unique cage plunging device. This ensured all cages were successfully installed without any quality issues. Despite facing some adverse weather conditions, the team came together brilliantly to deliver the project to a very high standard. Well done to all involved.”
Last month, we started work on the Urban Environment House in Helsinki, Finland. This office building, commissioned by the City of Helsinki will strive for a net-zero energy level. http://bit.ly/2G2eUmk
