Sheet Piling Installation

Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd is one of the leading sheet piling installation contractors in the UK, working on both temporary and permanent sheet pile installations within a range of projects, in a variety of sectors.

With a vastly experienced team, as well as a comprehensive fleet boasting some of the most advanced equipment on the market, it is one of the most trusted names in the country for sheet piling installation.

While sheet piles are often installed to provide temporary earthworks support, whilst other construction works are being carried out, they are also commonly seen in the construction of permanent basement structures and permanent retaining walls – project areas within which Sheet Piling UK has much experience.

We also offer marine and inland water sheet piling installation, which could be intended to deliver dock wall or quay wall stabilisation, or improve jetties, slipways, and mooring dolphins too.

Sheet piling installation is a well-established method, whereby steel sheet piles are pitched into the ground, usually being driven in using a vibratory hammer (dependent on ground conditions).

However, in situations where the vibrations caused by conventional piling installation are unacceptable (such as in environmentally sensitive areas), we also offer silent vibration-free sheet piling installation.

In these more sensitive cases, the specialist equipment that we hold within our fleet is deployed, to install and extract the piles with no vibration and almost no noise.

In some situations, temporary works have to be carried out before work can start, but Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd owns and operates a fleet of telescopic leader rigs, which can be set up within 30 minutes and fitted with various attachments.

As our clients will confirm, sheet piling installation is a very effective method, which provides excellent earth and water resistance, whilst also being a method which typically proves very cost-effective. For these reasons, and by virtue of being the market leader, Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd has carried out work on an extensive and varied portfolio of ‘high profile’ permanent basement schemes, which include:
