FK Lowry successfully delivered a £2.7M CFA & Rotary Bored Piling project on the Western Section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel Project at Carnwath Road on behalf of BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall & Balfour Beatty (BMB JV).
FK Lowry installed 91 linear metres of hard/firm secant bored pile walls with 880mm diameter temporary casings to form a 30m diameter shaft for one of three tunnel drives on the Western Section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel Scheme. 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 50-metre-deep main launch shaft for the Tunnel Boring Machine.
As well as the main shaft, FK Lowry also installed a range of CFA and Rotary Bored piles ranging from 750mm, 900mm and 1180mm diameter with 2 No. dual purpose Soilmec SR-75 and SR-95 Piling Rigs. Both, with the latest Tier IV Engines that adhered to latest engine emissions standards to EU Directive 97/68/EC.
FK Lowry successfully completed the sub-contract within their 27-week duration without Accident, Incident or Near-Miss.
“FK Lowry completed technically challenging works on a very constrained site at Carnwath Rd, safely and to a high standard. They’re a thoroughly professional company who produce high quality work”.David Brown, Section Manager for the Carnwath Rd Project
