Aarsleff Ground Engineering has said that work is progressing well on a new sheet piled retaining wall for a housing development in Herstmonceux in East Sussex.
The 436 linear metre wall is being constructed for main contractor WW Martin and will retain heights of up to 6m to allow the new homes to be developed on the sloping site.
WW Martin Martin constructed a temporary piling platform to allow Aarsleff to install the pairs of Z piles up to 17m long into the underlying Wadhurst Clay by vibro hammer using temporary guide frames. The wall will be completed by 133 7m long GU8N sheet piles that will be installed by an excavator-mounted Movax.
Aarsleff has said that it expects to complete the work, which started in mid-June, by the end of July.
