Central Piling launches ground engineering CPD

Central Piling has launched a CPD advising main contractors on their options for ground engineering systems.

The hour long presentation of images and videos bespoke to the business’ requirements details the variety of ground engineering techniques available.

The CPD talks contractors through the function and benefits of earth retaining and load bearing solutions and retaining systems.

Earth retaining systems include non-embedded retaining walls such as gravity, gabion and crib lock walls, and embedded retaining walls such as soldier pile, sheet pile, contiguous, secant and diaphragm walls.

Retaining systems include props and ground anchors while load bearing solutions include CFA and rotary piles, displacement auger piles, vibro stone columns, and driven steel tube and precast piles.

The CPD presentation advises on the composition of systems, where and how they can be used including to what depths and into what types of ground, whether the requirement is temporary or permanent, and whether it needs to be watertight.

It also advises on vibration levels, systems’ ease and speed of installation and cost-effectiveness, and even gives examples of where ground engineering systems have failed.
