Space saver

Regeneration of the Newark Canal wharf for Newark & Sherwood District Council has been accelerated by the use of Titan tension/compression piles from Ischebeck. The 10m piles, with a working capacity of 300kN, were used to tie back and transfer loadings from a new reinforced concrete cantilevered retaining wall being installed in front of the existing canal wall.

All work was restricted to the tow path area which offered a maximum overall width of just 3m. According to drilling contractor, Albion Drilling Services of Stirling, which installed the piles, a major benefit of the Titan injection technique relates to its space efficiency. 'The Titan system was selected in preference to conventional drill and case methods which require much larger machines,' says Albion's Eamond Murray. 'By combining the drilling, installing and grouting operations in one, the Titan system saves space and time.
