Do you always need to pile?
November 28, 2022
Construction in and around the St Helier basin provides opportunities for Structural Engineers to make use of local knowledge and modern design techniques to provide efficient foundation solutions.
Following a detailed ground investigation, T&G, with its extensive knowledge and experience of developments in St Helier and utilising its 3D capabilities with Finite Element design, provided a raft foundation suitable for the building. This omitted the need for a piled solution, which would typically be used for this type of building in town.
Construction work on the new development at 5 Duhamel Place is progressing well, with the Hadley Steel frame structure fully up. T&G provided the structural design for the foundations, ground floor and 1st floor concrete transfer structure to support the 3-storey building over. Working with local architects PAGE, we look forward to the successful completion of this project.
