Piling by the sea

Piling for a new RNLI Tamar lifeboat station at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, is being undertaken by Rock & Alluvium, part of the Galliford Try group, for principal contractor Dean & Dyball Civil Engineering.

A Soilmec CM50 rig is creating a secant wall for the construction of a wave dissipation void. The wall comprises 40 structural hard male piles of C35/45 with steel reinforcement cages to a maximum depth of 6m interspersed with 39 soft unreinforced female piles made from C8/10 to 4m.

The job also includes 36 load-bearing piles (four of them within the wall) to a maximum depth of 20m. All piles are 600mm diameters.

The value of the piling contract is £82,000.
