We can construct contiguous, kingpost and secant walls using CFA and rotary bored piling methods for permanent or temporary retaining walls. Bored pile walls are a cost efficient means of retaining ground and can also be installed near sensitive plant and in restricted locations.
We work closely with the client’s engineers at design stage to maximise the benefits available from the wall.
The requirement for the wall to act as a cantilever, propped or anchored is integrated into the overall scheme design. Utilising our in-house capabilities, varying retained heights can be achieved to provide complete solutions either free standing, propped or anchored retaining walls. These can be simply faced or treated with a variety of decorative finishes. Secant walls are of particular benefit in areas with high water table issues.
With low noise and vibration levels, together with their high load-bearing capacity, our bored pile retaining walls offer significant benefits over the use of sheet piles
Guide walls are often required for installation of secant piled retaining walls. We can provide guidance and details on suitable guide walls to ensure correct alignment at capping beam level. The high load bearing capacity of a bored pile wall enables cost effective designs for high rise buildings over basement car parks.
