Kvaerner Cementation Foundations


Kvaerner Cementation Foundations recently completed a hard-hard secant pile wall in the centre of Belfast, believed to be one of the first of its kind in Northern Ireland.

The firm installed about 100, 600mm diameter continuous flight auger piles up to 20m deep on the £128,000 contract for a new commercial development opposite the Grand Opera House. Unreinforced concrete, instead of a softer bentonite mix, was used in the female piles to form the wall for a new basement.
