Aarsleff Ground Engineering were awarded the contract by Wates Construction on behalf of Calderdale Council, for the construction of a new Primary School in Halifax, including a new sports area. Paul Dodsworth, Business Unit Director, Wates Construction North East and Yorkshire, said: “We’re very happy to be working with Calderdale Council on the redevelopment of these two schools”
From the 10th November to 15th December, Aarsleff installed 100lm of King Post Retaining Wall comprising steel king posts and pre-stressed, reinforced concrete interlocking panels, with a maximum retained height of 4.0m.
The 254x254x132 steel king posts have been installed using the radio-controlled Aarsleff “Baby” Mait rig capable of drilling 600mm diameter holes in cohesive soils to maximum 15mtrs depth.
It is expected that the new schools will be completed in time for the new term in September 2018.
King Post Walls can be designed to Eurocode 7 or British standards and can be analysed in the temporary or permanent conditions. The design life of a King Post Wall is generally 50 years or more depending on the requirements.
