Work carried out to re-instating the river bank at Jordan’s factory site in Biggleswade. The river had eroded the old brick retaining wall allowing the bank to collapse.

Richard Jackson Consultants produced the design for the installation: 9metre long, 603mm sheet piles along a 70 metre section of the bank.

The access to the work site was restricted between the factory and the river but sufficient to enable a small section of wall to be removed and piles installed to prevent the bank collapsing. The final driving of the piles into stiff clay was completed by a 700 newton air hammer.

The old timber clad moorings at Beccles had collapsed and the project involved installing 75 linear metres of galvanised 600mm x 5mm 5m long interlocking sheet piles with timber capping.

With difficult access to the site, all the work, including the backfilling was done using our steel modular pontoons and Hiab crane.

Roadside Bank Repair using sheet piles

Roadside River Bank Repair, Lincolnshire

A burst water main caused a bank-side collapse. To repair it, 4 metre long sheet piles were driven down into the riverbed to support the bank edge.

Access was restricted at the roadside so the piling work was carried out using our lorry loader (Hiab) crane with the piling equipment attached to the back of the lorry. This reduces the need for equipment and excavation on the roadside and all equipment is removed at night.
