Westpile is this month due to finish installing the last of 450 retaining wall and foundation piles for a new residential building in Bermondsey on London's south bank. The seven-storey block is the third phase of a 2,000m2 development by developer Galliard Homes, built by its contracting arm Galliard Construction.

After several days of pilot ground probing for obstructions, Westpile sank the first pile on its £360,000 contract in early May and the building is due to be finished in autumn 2006.
