Contiguous pile retaining walls are constructed using CFA or bored piling methods and are an ideal retaining wall solution for urban areas as they can be constructed without encroaching on adjacent properties. These walls can be constructed to provide load-bearing capacity as well as a retaining structure where line loads can be applied to the wall or additional piles to form caps.
Contiguous pile walls are ideal when groundwater ingress is not an issue for the finished wall. This type of retaining wall is used on a wide range of engineering projects such as ground stabilisation, underpasses, and basement walls. Here at Aarsleff Ground Engineering, we have the specialist plant and team to install Contiguous Pile Retaining Walls and benefit from having significant experience in designing, installing, and testing contiguous piled retaining walls in a variety of diameters and locations across Northern Europe.
Most recently, Aarsleff installed 1,517m of contiguous piles at the University of Leeds for the expansion of their Business School. The wall was constructed using 600mm CFA piles, which acted as bearing piles for the new 6-story teaching block as well as forming the walls for the basement. The 5.85m retaining wall was designed to be cantilever in the temporary condition, then propped by the basement and ground floor slab in the permanent condition. Read more about this project here.
