FK Lowry successfully delivered a £2.5M Rotary Bored Piling Project on the Western Section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel Project at Hammersmith Pumping Station on behalf of BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall & Balfour Beatty (BMB JV). This was the second Thames Tideway Tunnel Scheme that FK Lowry secured and came on the back of a £2.7M Scheme at Carnwath Rd, Fulham.
FK Lowry installed a total of 153 linear metres of hard/firm secant bored pile walls using 700mm, 1000mm and 1180mm diameter temporary casings to form a Combined Sewage Overflow (CSO), Culvert and Interception Chamber on the Project. The secant bored pile walls were designed and installed to create a water “cut-off” into the underlying London Clay to allow the construction of a 14m diameter circular shaft, a 25 metre long culvert and a 25m deep rectangular Interception Chamber adjacent to the existing “Live” Pumping Station on site. Due to stringent verticality tolerances, temporary casing was required to be installed over the full length of the Pile and FK Lowry utilized one of their Soilmec SR-95 Rotary Bored Piling Rigs to deliver the scheme.
FK Lowry successfully completed the sub-contract within their 25-week duration without Accident, Incident or Near-Miss.
“FK Lowry provided a quality, efficient and collaborative service for the entirety of their time working on the Tideway West HAMPS Project. Their approach to all aspects of the job was commendable, ranging from their input in pre-start scenarios to sequencing innovative working methods where required. Their enthusiasm for delivering a quality product is shown by a number of our sister sites also requesting their services. In summary, it was a pleasure working with FK Lowry and we would have no hesitation in working with them again.”Scott Hughes, Section Manager for the Hammersmith Project
