Aarsleff Ground Engineering have been awarded the foundations contract for the construction of a new residential development in Nottingham.
Working on behalf of main contractor J Tomlinson, Aarsleff will be installing 16 No. 300mm SFA piles utilising a 14t restricted access piling Rig.
Aarsleff’s contracts manager David Cooke said: “Due to existing Tree Preservation Orders in place on several mature trees, this rig has been selected to provide minimal disruption.
“Apart from some localised pruning to the trees, the rig will be capable of working from the existing Tarmac and working from a reduced spec piling platform”.
According to Aarsleff, the project will need minimal preparation work in an environmental impact location, and the vibration free technique selected will provide minimal disturbance during the pile installation.
The site, located in Beeston, consists of former school buildings, split between two separate adjacent sites. When completed the new development will be a new student residential complex, made up of three independent buildings over the two sites.
Aarsleff will be on site for five days.
