Driving precast concrete piles for classroom extension.
Aarsleff Ground Engineering have recently completed the driven precast piling works for a classroom extension at Highgate School in Kings Lynn. The infant school required 12no. piles for the extension, of which E.N. Suiter and Sons Ltd awarded Aarsleff the contract to install the precast piles.
The site of the extension, located in the playground area at the school, had a small footprint area and restricted access. Aarsleff deployed their bespoke Banut 300 midi-rig for the job, which has a lower bearing pressure and a compact design compared to normal piling rigs. This provided good manoeuvrability and safe installation of the piles on site.
Aarsleff’s Graduate Engineer, Sam Riley, who oversaw Aarsleff’s works said,
“By utilising our Banut 300 piling rig, we were able to overcome the issues with restricted access and the small area of the site. The compact design and safety features of the Banut allowed for our operatives to work safely on the project. Overall it has been great to work with E.N. Suiter again after working with them at Spalding Wygate Park Academy earlier in the year.”
