CFA piling for new development on a former quarry
Aarsleff Ground Engineering have completed the piling works for a new residential development in Leighton Buzzard.
Leestone Park is part of the Eastern Leighton Linslade Urban Extension Scheme, which will see the former 95-hectare Chamberlain Barn Quarry off Heath Road being redeveloped into a new residential area. Once completed, it is expected a total of 950 new homes, plus a school and local centre will be built on the site, along with a country park and public outdoor spaces.
Aarsleff Ground Engineering were awarded the CFA piling works by Redrow Homes (South Midlands), who were the lead house builder for the first two phases of the development. Aarsleff commenced on site on 21st August, where they utilised their Soilmec SF150 piling rig to auger 303no. 350mm diameter CFA piles for 30 houses and associated garages, with pile lengths from 9m to 13m lengths.
