Val de Vie

Challenging geotechnical profile with river boulders present to a depth of 6m.  Percussive pre-drilling and grouting using sister company Geomechanics was required to create a safe passage for the ductile iron pile to be driven. The piles were installed open ended, which ensured a proper rock socket of 2m on average.  The piles achieved safe working loads of between 650-1050kN with a raking arrangement of piles limiting the shear load per pile to less than 20kN
