Park Royal


VolkerGround Engineering was awarded a £0.9m contract by Modebest to undertake steel piling at Park Royal.The VolkerGround Engineering team installed temporary sacrificial sheet piling to three new-build residential blocks to allow the construction of reinforced concrete basements.

With strict noise and vibration restrictions on site, VolkerGround Engineering utilised a silent press to ensure the works did not breach these limits in close proximity to neighbours. The works were completed using a ZU100 press and an ABI TM 13/16 leader rig.

Due to obstructions in the ground which could not be excavated, the team altered the pile line within agreed limits to prevent disruption.

The project at Park Royal resulted in a strong relationship between VolkerGround Engineering and the main contractor.

The team’s contributions led to further works with Modebest being secured.
