Pennine Vibropiling

Pennine Vibropiling has finished installing 2900 vibro stone columns for Kier Scotland on a B&Q Warehouse in Coatbridge near Glasgow.

The £70,000 contract was designed by Will Rudd Roxburgh, consulting engineer to developer MacDonald Estates.Vibro stone columns varying from 4m to 8m in length were installed by the dry top feed method.These columns were intended to improve the bearing capacity of the ash and slag fills left on the site after its previous use as an ironworks.

Work was completed in three weeks using two vibro rigs designed and manufactured by Pennine Ground Engineering.
