UK foundation contractor Bachy Soletanche is using its Dublin Wall system on the £1M first phase of Dandara's housing development in Glasgow Harbour. The hybrid wall - described as 'somewhere between a slurry cut-off wall and a CFA piled wall' - is being used on three sides of an excavation for a basement car park. The fourth side will be formed by a more traditional contiguous bored pile wall. With the third and final phase of development not due to start until 2007, work will continue until 2008 or 2009.
