Facts about the project:

• All piles are CFA secant wall piles

• Pile depths varies from 9.5 – 25.5m

• All piles are 750mm in diameter

• Ground conditions: soft sand / very soft (liquid) sand

• CLL participated on the design with both Holmes and T+T  

• Estimated total concrete volume = 36.000m3 = 9000 concrete trucks  


• LB24 – CFA mode

• ABI 14/18 - CFA mode

• GEAX EK110 - CFA mode

• 180t Kobelco crawler crane

• Concrete pumps – SKP80 x2, SCHWING x1 o 14t excavator x2 

• 11t excavator

• 8t excavator

• 5.5t excavator

Daily Records – piling

• LB24 – 294lm/day

• ABI14/18 – 324lm/day

• EK110 – 242lm/day

Daily Records – concrete volumes

• 273m3/day = 69 concrete trucks in one day

Daily Records – spoil removal

• 355m3/day = 60 truck loads (8Wheelers) in one day

• CLL is using Autodesk products (AutoCAD and REVIT) for piling plan

• CLL is using GNSS Sokkia GCX2 and Sokkia SHC5000 field computer tool for the land surveying with 5mm accuracy
