Piling progress for west London school extension

Work on extending Notting Hill and West Ealing High School is now underway following completion of the foundations work by Westpile.

More than 190m plan lengths of 900mm diameter continuous flight auger secant piles have been installed to form a retaining wall for the 10.75m deep excavations needed for construction of the new sports hall and classrooms. Westpile has also installed 98 750mm diameter rotary contiguous piles for retaining walls and to support the tower crane for the main construction work.

Work on the project began last summer and construction work is expected to be completed by August 2013 in time for the new school year.
