Aarsleff Ground Engineering awarded the Piling for Phase Two of Segro Park Rainham

    Segro Park Rainham is set to be one of East London’s most
    advanced industrial and warehouse developments. As part of the East Plus Scheme
    to regenerate under-developed and brownfield sites, the park is expected to create
    many new employment opportunities for local people across a broad range of

    The success of phase one of the development, which saw in
    excess of 200,000 sq ft of unit space constructed, has led to start of phase
    two, which will bring an additional 108,000 sq ft of unit space to the park. Phase
    two will also bring advanced sustainability innovations and on-site amenities
    to the facilities to enhance the well-being and productivity of its occupiers.

    A & H Construction awarded Aarsleff the foundations
    contract towards the end of September, which included the structural and slab
    foundations of all five units encompassed within phase two.

    Commencing works on the 2nd December, Aarsleff
    will utilise three of its Junttan PMx22 and PM20 piling rigs to install over 1,140no.
    precast concrete piles of 250mm and 300mm square. The 300mm square section
    piles will be used for the building frame foundations, whilst the 250mm square
    section piles will be utilised for the floor slab foundations.

    Some of the piles in a small area of the site were specified
    to be installed using minimal vibration methods due to being in close proximity
    to the London Tilbury rail line. Fortunately, Aarsleff was able to offer a CFA
    solution for these piles which will be installed using their Soilmec SF50, one
    of Aarsleff’s latest rig investments.

    Aarsleff’s Senior Technical Estimator Dan Coe said,

    “We are pleased to be awarded the piling works for phase
    two of Segro Park Rainham. It is also great to be working with A & H
    Construction again this year, having installed precast concrete piles in July
    for them on a new retail development off Newport Road in Cardiff.”

    Aarsleff Ground Engineering expect to complete their piling
    works before Christmas with construction to be complete and ready for lease in Quarter
    3 of 2020.
