Restricted Access Piling for Gillingham Sewage Treatment Works in Dorset
Restricted Access Piling contractor Aarsleff Ground Engineering were awarded the restricted access piling contract by Wessex Water, for the extension of Gillingham’s Sewage Treatment Works (STW) in Dorset.
Gillingham STW is located approximately 580m southwest of the centre of Gillingham and 1.45km west of Ham common and serves a population of 15,100. An extension to Gillingham’s STW is required to provide additional plant and equipment to treat an increased volume of wastewater, and installation of phosphorous removal plant.
Aarsleff commenced on site in early September 2018, installing 303No. precast concrete piles with its Banut 300 rig, ideally suited for restricted-access sites. The piles were 250mm square section and between 5-13m in length, designed to cater for up to 455kN compressive working loads. All piles were manufactured in Aarsleff’s sister manufacturing facility Centrum Pile and were therefore tested and confirmed as structurally competent before delivery to site.
