White Cart

In a main contract worth £27.5m VolkerStevin was appointed by Glasgow City Council to construct flood defence walls through an urban section in the southern part of the city.

The VolkerGround Engineering sub contract comprised the installation of 5km of sheet piled wall throughout the works area, on 26 separate sites.

A combination of difficult ground conditions which required pre boring techniques through stiff Glacial Clays, and restricted access within residential areas provided challenges in achieving the anticipated completion programme. Piling work extended through most of 2010, and was completed in early 2011.
