FK Lowry Piling has completed the piling for the west section of the Tideway tunnel at the Carnwath Road site.

Contracted by the Bam Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty JV, the firm undertook a £2.7M contract to install the piling to form a 30m diameter shaft for the west section’s main tunnel drive.

The firm installed 91m of hard/firm secant bored pile walls with 880mm diameter temporary casings.

The secant bored pile walls were designed and installed to create a water ‘cut-off’ into the underlying London Clay to allow the construction of a 50m deep main launch shaft for the TBM.

As well as the main shaft, FK Lowry Piling also installed a range of CFA and rotary bored piles ranging from 750mm, 900mm and 1180mm diameter with 2 No. dual purpose Soilmec SR-75 and SR-95 Piling Rigs.

Tideway section manager for the Carnwath Road Riverside site David Brown said: “FK Lowry completed technically challenging works on a very constrained site at Carnwath Rd, safely and to a high standard.”

FK Lowry piling director Niall McGill added: “We at FK Lowry Piling were delighted to be involved in the successful delivery of Carnwath Rd which is an integral part of one of the most prestigious civil engineering projects that the UK has seen in many years.

“With our dedicated team and state-of-the-art Piling Rigs, we delivered this project with the highest safety standards, within programme and cost requirements.

“We at FK Lowry Piling continue to deliver on the Thames Tideway Tunnel Project with award of repeat business on the Hammersmith Pumping Station and Dormay Street projects.”
