Elements of Bore & Sheet piling, Earth nailing, and caged re-enforcement where involved. In addition to abutment walls and extensive earthworks to move contaminated soil to the wash plant prior to clean material Type 1 being re-supplied to ensure we maintained our environment friendly standards. There was an additional challenge constructing the underground high voltage tunnels that where drilled out with a Tunnel Boring Machine and all UK Power Networks that ran on Pylon’s where diverted underground to allow the Olympic park footprint to remain obstruction free.
