Storming Success for Aarsleff At Worthing Pier - continued

Using Aarsleff’s own Junttan PM20 rigs five 300 mm square and three 350 mm square Greenheart timber piles were driven into the underlying chalk seabed.

Work was scheduled for the Spring, as this would maximise the working low-tide window.

Storms Cause Problem

The British weather did its best to reduce this window further, as the winter storms eroded the seabed to the south of the pier, resulting in a further reduced tidal working window.

To overcome this, Worthing Borough Council constructed a piling mat using recycled seabed material from the east of the Pier. This provided a stable working platform approx. 400 mm higher than the existing seabed level, resulting in a tidal working window of 4 - 4.5 hours.

This increased tidal working window meant the works were completed ahead of schedule with all piles installed over two tides, instead of the anticipated eight tides the programme of works initially had budgeted.

KD Engineering now has the task of rebuilding the timber structure in time for the International Worthing Birdman event on 12-13th July 2014.

Speaking about the project, Alistair Ktori, Managing Director, KD Engineering said “Aarsleff exceeded our expectations with professionalism and efficiency.

“We first worked with Aarsleff back in April 2010 and the project went very smoothly and without problems.

“This time, with the added knowledge of what we were doing, the work was completed in a quarter of the time allowed. We look forward to working with Aarsleff and their crew again in the near future.”
