Pennine Vibropiling

Geotechnical contractor Pennine Vibropiling will be exhibiting services and activities covering vibro-piling techniques, ground improvement engineering and dynamic probing. One of the highlights will be its new Rapid Impact Compaction system, acclaimed by the Building Research Establishment for its effectiveness in improving granular fill down to 4m.The method is particularly useful for consolidating material where roads, car parks and floor slabs are to be built. An hydraulic piling hammer applies 10-30 blows to a1.5m diameter foot, with the number of impacts and depth of the resultant depressions recorded by on-board instrumentation. The depressions are topped with granular material and a second pass carried out. Validation of the bearing pressure required is confirmed using dynamic sounding and zone load testing. Stand 9274
