The site, located on Salthouse Lane in Beeston, a town to the south of the city of Nottingham in the UK, consists of former school buildings with associated grounds, split between two separate adjacent sites, within proximity of each other.
As part of the development, a new student residential complex will be constructed, consisting of three independent buildings over two sites.
Specifically, Aarsleff will be installing 16no 300mm SFA piles utilising a 14t restricted access piling rig. Aarsleff's contracts manager David Cooke said: "Due to existing tree preservation orders in place on several mature trees, this rig has been selected to provide minimal disruption. Apart from some localised pruning to the trees, the rig will be capable of working from the existing tarmac and working from a reduced spec piling platform". The vibration-free technique selected will also provide minimal disturbance during the pile installation.
