Morrison Construction

Morrison Construction is laying the mainland section of a pipeline for a pounds45M Welsh Water project designed to improve the quality of beaches in North Wales. More than 2.4km of the contract is being placed in a 3m deep, 2.3m wide trench. Temporary works design was aided by shoring equipment supplier Groundforce, which helped Morrisons calculate the optimum size of waling beam and spacing of struts to support the sheet piled excavation. Steel sheet piles were pre-driven along the route of the pipeline, and the trench is now being excavated and supported in 7m sections, using steel waler beams cut into 7m lengths for ease of handling.
