Sheet Piling has launched a new division - Excavation Support Solutions (ESS) - which will focus entirely on the needs of smaller and medium-sized earthwork support projects. The focus of the new division is on operations which typically hire-in sheet piles and then often then incur problems, project management issues and possible financial losses too if they have to write-off the cost of those hired sheet piles after project completion.
Sheet Piling has recognised that this is not the only issue for contractors. Having to try to manage health and safety compliance, in an area of groundworks that is not a business' specialisation, is an exposure that many should think twice about taking on board. Since new Health & Safety Sentencing Guidelines were introduced, robust risk management has never been more essential, if punitive fines (and potentially even prison sentences) are to be avoided.
Having different contractors trying to coordinate one project can also be difficult, which is why ESS is offering a seamless and rapid one-stop service, encompassing sheet pile project design, management, installation of light- to heavy-duty sheet piles and extraction of those piles, if required.
The aim is to help projects keep on schedule, avoiding delays and additional, unanticipated hurdles during a project's excavation stage.
All of the sheet piles have passed Sheet Piling's usual stringent strength and stability tests and are fit for purpose, whether they are being used for temporary or permanent excavation support or deployed within temporary cofferdams or trenches.
Any form of excavation bracing system can also be supplied and installed, whether the need is for fabricated, structural steelwork, or proprietary hydraulic bracing systems. All can be accessed within one easy-to-commission package, in a hassle-free, timely and safety-orientated solution.
