Bauer wins US Embassy foundations work

Bauer Technology has been awarded the contract to undertake the piling and diaphragm walling for the new US Embassy building in Battersea.

Preliminary work on test piling is expected to start this month ahead of the main contract to build a diaphragm wall and deep base-grouted piles in August.

In order to deliver the major project in the three month schedule set out by US Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) construction contractor, BL Harbert, and prime sub-contractor, Sir Robert McAlpine, Bauer is mobilising a large fleet of rigs. The company has said that it plans to use two BG40, two BG28 and two diaphragm wall grabs mounted on MC64 base units to deliver the work.
