Piling contractor wins again!
In early 2018, piling contractor Aarsleff Ground Engineering completed a project installing 925 No. precast concrete piles, which were driven from 9m to 14m in length, for part of the new Stadium Leisure Complex in York. Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd originally enquired for a CFA pile design, however Aarsleff sought early engagement with Buckingham’s to detail the benefits of a driven precast alternative.
The new Stadium Leisure Complex Project will combine sport, health and educational facilities and once completed, will include an 8,000 all seater stadium to be shared by York City Football Club and York City Knights Rugby League Club, swimming facilities, cinema, gym, dance studio and a sports hall with spectator seating. The scheme will also house a wide range of community facilities, catering and hospitality venues and family leisure activities.
Piles were driven with 3 of Aarsleff’s own Junttan Rigs, including the PMx22. Aarsleff’s work will provide the foundations for the Retail, Leisure and East Stand buildings.
