Driven Piling Contractor take on Chatham Waters
Aarsleff Ground Engineering is currently on site driving precast concrete piles for Chatham Waters, a new residential development on a historic naval dockyard. The dock was acquired by Peel Land and Property in 2006, with the ground engineering work being awarded to Aarsleff by main contractor Herbert T Forrest Ltd.
Aarsleff is using two of its Junttan PMx22 rigs to drive 360 No. precast piles of 350mm diameter. Because of the dockyards history, the ground conditions for this project were expected to be challenging. Due to this, Aarsleff will work closely with Peel Land and Property to make sure that any problems that do arise can be solved quickly and efficiently.
Once completed, Chatham Waters will be a 14-story block with one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments. The residential project follows a number of commercial projects at Chatham Waters including an Asda superstore, Medway University Technical College and a restaurant pub, The Mast and Rigging.
