Geotechnical Ground Conditions Assessment

IKM News • Updated June 2024

Our geotechnical team has recently completed the assessment of the ground-bearing capacity for a crawler crane used for demolition works of a sheet piled wall at the ESSO Bowling site.

We evaluated the revetment’s makeup to ensure it could adequately distribute the maximum expected applied load while maintaining an acceptable factor of safety (FoS) against global slope stability and ground-bearing capacity failure in accordance with BRE 470 ‘Working Platform for Tracked Plant’.

IKM’s team designed a number of lifting setups for the crane to manoeuvre a sheet pile cutting tool into position to cut and safely remove the existing sheet pile from the toe of the revetment. This will allow our client to install the new armour layer, which will protect the newly built revetment.
