Recent schemes on the rail infrastructure have increased Ivor King (C.E.C) Ltd’s involvement in this challenging sector. We are increasingly being asked to consider more restricted projects by our client base. Early involvement gives us the ability to propose practical solutions to clients that address methodology and feasibility. Much of the newer piling technologies have crossed over to this sector and are widely used with Road-Rail Vehicles (RRV) for pile installation. Both hydraulic pressing and vibration free techniques are particularly suitable given the constraints required of the rail sector, allowing safe installation in often unstable and sensitive embankment locations or retaining walls in close proximity to live assets.
