King Post Wall for New Student Accommodation in Sheffield
King Post Wall installed for new Student Accommodation in Sheffield – Aarsleff Ground Engineering was awarded the contract at Solly Street in Sheffield for the construction of new student accommodation. The £35m scheme comprising 570 rooms is anticipated to be delivered for the 2020 academic year. The site includes St Vincent’s Church and a former working men’s club, and main client Unite Students wants to turn the church building into a student ‘hub’ with teaching space and common rooms. The club facade would also be kept.
Aarsleff was contracted to design, supply and install 129L/M of temporary sacrificial King Post Wall over three elevations. Aarsleff deployed its Comacchio (DTHH) for rotary open hole drilling using air flush. This rig is able to drill boreholes up to 450mm in diameter. Aarsleff installed 42no steel columns with a crane and then slotted in the precast concrete interlocking panels.
