Project Overview


Sheet Piling were instructed to undertake the installation of a sheet piling on several areas of this sensitive greenfield site. Elements of the sheet piling required permanent anchorage in the form of tension micropiles.

The work was undertaken to a tight timescale and Pennine dedicated a numebr of rigs to the project to ensure that all timings were achieved.


Almost 100 tension micro piles were installed at depths of up to 22 metres.
