OUR RECENT PROJECTS

Queen Mary University of London

CONTRACT DESCRIPTION:

Queen Mary University of London have approached us regarding a blocked FW manhole.

The previous company who tendered for the job assured our client that the only way to do the job is to open cut and install connection. This would cause a major obstacle for our client as this was/is the main road in and out of the compound.

We came with a different approach to the matter. We suggested a shaft and heading so therefore, not affecting the traffic and reduce the disruption to a minimum.

Once we sunk the shaft to 4.5m we started the heading leading to the FW main run and installation of new pipeline 11 meter in length.

Second stage was connecting a new run to the blocked FW manhole and connecting the pipes coming to an installed overall 11 meters of new pipeline.

“All I had to do was point this contractor at the job and it was done. The standard of design input and quality of work was truly outstanding. The attention to detail, especially from a H&S point of view, was fantastic. No worries about using them again.”

Soho, London – Underpinning

CONTRACT DESCRIPTION:

We recently undertook an underpinning project in the heart of Soho for ‘Deconstruct’ working on behalf of Blenheim House Construction.

This was a monumental challenge due to the sheer amount of arisings, not only from our underpins, but also from the live demolition. With good logistics and a great collaboration with Deconstruct’s site team.

This proves that with proper teamwork and good planning any level of difficulty can be overcome.

Lane Civil Engineering has delivered all of the work to the highest levels of quality while upholding the best levels of safety.

Soho, London – Crane base shaft

CONTRACT DESCRIPTION:

On a current contract involving 4m deep underpinning, we have taken over the design and construction of a shaft to accommodate a new crane base.

The shaft was to be constructed 4.8m square and 4m deep from an existing basement level with limited access and lifting options. Work had already started on sheet pile installation when the proposed temporary works design was queried.

The original design for the temporary works and methodology incorporated steel sheet piles and hydraulic frames, unfortunately this did not account for localised adverse loadings from the proximity of the foundations of the existing structure.

When this system was analysed for the actual loading the required frames proved beyond the available lifting and installation options.

Our Temporary Works Division reviewed the loading system and temporary works design and proposed with a traditional timber framing method and installation procedure. A traditional approach time proved and a light weight solution.

The design is based on a braced frame solution as can be seen from the photographs.

The project involved us digging a 4m shaft followed by 18m of timber heading.

The heading was driven through 18m of hard rock, for a 300mm clay pipe sewer connection. While this represented a monumental challenge we have finished works within the times agreed, with a satisfied client and a massive ‘well done’ to our site team.
