The project will see our client,Van Elle, install a total of 193 CHS piles using two Colmar T10,000FSC RRV machines; one with a vibratory attachment (Movax) and one with an impact hammer (BSP) to drive to design level.

Repurposing used oil and gas tubulars as piling is an economical as well as environmentally friendly option for construction projects from residential construction to large-scale infrastructure projects, and we are proud to be demonstrating innovative thinking in support of the drive towards a circular economy.
