Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering focuses on a silent solution

Construction of foundations for new student accommodation in Hammersmith called for a piling solution that minimised noise and vibration.

Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering (BBGE) used CFA piling techniques at the site at Ravenscourt House to minimise the impact of the work on pupils at the neighbouring John Betts Primary School.

Construction timescales meant that work had to be completed during term time but, according to BBGE, the company installed a total of 510 piles at the site without disturbing the school.
