Where vibration and noise could adversely impact on existing structures or the environment, silent and vibrationless hydraulic pressing techniques are often used. Ivor King C.E.C Ltd operate Giken ECO 700S piling rigs, which offer the very latest technology from Japan and is cost effective, silent and has low environmental impact.
Unlike other contractors, with this similar type of equipment we are able to press not only traditional U profile piles, but also AZ and 750mm profile sections either singly or in pairs. By using the larger sections we are able to realise savings of 10 – 15% over traditionally used sections. With ever more challenging conditions, this system can be complemented with pre-augering or water jetting techniques to assist with the installation or extraction process.
