Geotechnical and ground engineering is a discipline that plays a critical role in all infrastructure and development projects. Aarsleff’s work is a fundamental component of infrastructure and building projects, including work for tunnel and underground structures, bridges, buildings, transit and rail facilities, embankment support, marine and offshore facilities, mines, airports, water projects, and energy facilities.
Over many years the Aarsleff team have built up a reputation for expertise and integrity when it comes to providing technically innovative solutions to civil engineering foundation problems. For instance, Aarsleff’s precast concrete piles generate no spoil or arising from the driven installation and remove the need for additional traffic movements in and out of the site. On urban brownfield sites, in particular, there is also no hazardous waste to dispose of.
Areas of involvement include road construction, water treatment facilities, canals, coastal protection and major rail projects like the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, where Aarsleff manufactured and installed hundreds of 600 mm square section precast concrete piles, the only project of its type in Europe.
Our engineers welcome the chance to work with project designers from early stages to ensure a value engineered option incorporating optimal performance to meet design load demands and programme. Aarsleff provides its clients with a comprehensive range of specialist geotechnical services required for the planning, design, and implementation of ground engineering projects, as well as to manage the ground risks associated with all infrastructure projects. Typical techniques employed on Infrastructure projects range from Soil Nails and Ground Anchors to Mini Piles and Sheet Piling.
