Design, Construction and Site Management Solutions
This site required a ‘build over’ agreement with Thames Water including a special piling design and ground movement analysis to ensure there will be no impact on the existing sewer. Staggered start of construction over one month, which minimised noise impact on local residents. Our design was amended to include the use of CFA Piling instead of percussion
impact piling to reduce noise levels for local residents.
Deeley Road also required the closing of adjoining Parvin Street to ensure minimal impact on these residents and each was notified by weekly letter and car windscreen drops for five weeks prior to the closure date.
