Ramada Hotel, Newcastle

VolkerGround Engineering completed the installation of steel sheet piles to form the steel intensive car park basement of the new Ramada Hotel & Conference Centre at Newcastle International Airport.

The ground conditions on site required us to pre-auger the pile line to assist with the rig driving. However, the ground conditions proved to be considerably stiffer than that indicated in the site investigation and an impact hammer was utilised to achieve the final level.

The piles were installed in close proximity to fibre optic cables and an existing sub-station therefore our resonance free leader rig was used to carry out the works as the vibrations this machine produces were within the limits given by the authorities involved.
