Piling for crossing over a Victorian lake in London's Kew Gardens was completed in mid-January. Green Piling, working for Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering under a £30,000 subcontract, installed the 457mm diameter driven steel piles from a causeway built across the drained lake. Project consultant was Buro Happold. Using steel driven instead of traditional bored concrete piles offered a way of limiting the work's environmental impact on the rare and historic trees, shrubs and other plants at the World Heritage site.
