Following a number of conference calls, the client was able to determine an order of preference, cost and move forward with the project.
An Express Pile Mat Design Saves £s in unnecessary spot hire fees.
Ground & Water had to leap into action at short notice and deliver a quick turnaround to prevent a client’s project from stalling and running up additional cost.
The developer was proposing a piled foundation scheme in north-west London. They had booked a piling rig, but as often happens, they did not have a Pile Mat design. The clock was ticking.
Ground & Water was contacted by the client to undertake plate load testing and pile mat design for a proposed piled foundation scheme.
Utilising strategic partners, Ground & Water worked over a weekend. The plate loading tests were arranged at very short notice. Carried out on the Saturday, the results were sent through the next day. Further liaison with strategic partners allowed for the finalised Pile Mat designs in accordance with BRE470 RE2316 010 and RE2316 des 020, to be sent to the client two days later on the Tuesday.
This extremely quick turnaround and the flexibility of the strategic partners avoided an expensive delay to the piling operation and allowed the contractor to keep its build on track.
Thanks to the willingness of team of engineers at Ground & Water we have the flexibility to deliver positive outcomes for you at very short notice.
