Westpile design and installed piling


Foundation contractor Westpile has designed and installed the first phase of piling at Tequila Wharf in Limehouse, east London.

The Telford Homes development consists of 137 one- and twobedroom apartments in five to ten storeys with basement parking. The site runs parallel to Regent's Canal as it leaves the Limehouse Basin.

Westpile's initial piling installation is inside a sheet piled basement level and is comprised of 125, 350mm diameter and 93, 450mm diameter CFA piles at depths of up to 18m, designed to carry 144kN.

The contractor has also installed piling at ground level beyond the retaining wall, using restricted access rigs because the site is so narrow.

The scheme is due for completion in 2006 and has a total value of more than £20M.
