Aarsleff - Herstmonceux sheet piled retaining wall

AGE main works will provide a wall with retained heights up to 6m to accommodate the existing sloping site and allow the housing development to be constructed behind.

WW Martin constructed a temporary piling platform for the AGE 80t crawler crane to operate from and allows AGE to install pairs of Z-piles using temporary guide frames as support until sufficient penetration into the Wadhurst clay strata is achieved. A crane suspended, high-frequency vibro hammer is being utilised to install the Z-piles and the remaining 133 No. 7m long GU8N sheet piles will be installed with Aarsleff's own Movax SG75 and Volvo base machine.

Aarsleff will be installing almost a full range of Z-profiles for this project, with section lengths ranging from 9.5m to 17m long to accommodate the site's varying retained heights from 2m to 6m.
