Rock & Alluvium has successfully completed a major CFA piling project for Galliford Try, which will enable a major regeneration scheme of a former pharmaceutical factory in east London to get underway.
The first phase of the scheme involves redevelopment of the Great Eastern Quays of the Albert Basin in the Royal Docks with 350 homes and office, retail and leisure spaces for Notting Hill Homes. A further 500 homes are planned for construction in later phases of the work.
The design of the development aims to reflect the heritage of the docks in both form and scale while protecting features such as a 100 year old impounded pumping station which will be preserved onsite.
The 20-week £1.1M contract undertaken by Rock & Alluvium involved installation of 1,200 400mm and 600mm diameter bearing piles to depths of 24.5m to take loads of up to 1,100kN for the new development.
