Big dig at luxury Battersea flats

SHORING equipment from MGF Trench Construction Systems is supporting a huge excavation by the River Thames at Battersea, where Barratt West London is building luxury apartments.

The Oyster Wharfdevelopment comprises three sevenstorey concrete-framed blocks.

The western site boundary is only 16m from the river wall.

Groundwork and construction of the reinforced concrete frame are being carried out by contractor J Reddington.

MGF's heavy duty raking props are supporting the steel sheet piles on one side ofthe 80m long, 40m wide, 5m deep basement excavation.

The props were used in the deepest parts while the pile caps, ground beams and basement slab were cast. Work on this phase of the project was due to finish last month.
