Central Piling starts 2021 with a quadruplet of contract wins

Contract wins worth over £2.6 million take the contractor happily into the New Year.

Specialist piling contractor Central Piling has announced four new CFA contract wins

Work has already begun on an eight-week contract for regular customer JB Structures at Axe Street, London, where Central Piling is installing more than 300 450mm-diameter piles to 29m for a luxury apartment block. Central Piling is using Soilmec SF65 rigs.

The company will start work early January on a 12-month contract for Countryside Properties in South Oxhey, Watford, Hertfordshire. This will involve a Soilmec SF50 rig installing 1,500 350mm-diameter load-bearing piles to 16m for the final phase of the South Oxhey Central development, incorporating the demolition of buildings and construction of 345 new homes, 18,500ft2 Lidl store, and 4,000ft2 of retail space.

Work is also due to start on a nine-week programme for Galliard Homes at Soho Wharf, Birmingham, where three of Central Piling’s Soilmec SF65 and SR75 rigs will install almost 1,000 450mm-diameter load-bearing piles to 28m, with the deepest piles founding in rock to support the loads from the luxury apartment blocks above.

Central Piling will start test piling this month on their fourth new contract win for Weston Homes at Abbey Retail Park, Barking, London. The main work will begin in March, when they will be installing more than 520 450mm, 500mm and 650mm-diameter CFA piles to 29m for a luxury apartment block, using their Soilmec SF65 and SR75 rigs in the tough ground conditions associated with Thanet sands.
