62 Buckingham Gate, London SW1

Appleton Piling Ltd have recently completed the temporary sheet piling to the proposed basement structure for Sir Robert McAlpine. A total number of 397, 16m and 17m long, SX27 sheet piles, were installed using two Kowan WP150 Still Workers.

Noise and vibration were kept to an absolute minimum using the Kowan WP150 Still Workers when piling on the site directly adjacent to the Westminster Council Offices on Victoria Street, London and the Korean Embassy on Spenser Street, London. The sheet piles were installed through the sands and gravels to toe into the clay strata approximately 13m below ground level.
