The foundations were piled due to significant quantities of fill across the site area consisting of ash and weak silty clays. In addition the water table was extremely high.
Pre-cast concrete piles were adopted to overcome the high water table and were taken down to a depth of 12m to reach the firm sandstone rock.
The contract for the scheme was a JCT contract and HSP Consulting worked with the design and build contractor from design conception to the completion of the scheme.
