DIAPHRAGM WALL, ANCHORS AND PRECAST PILES AT MAROOCHYDORE
Wagstaff Piling successfully constructed the retention and foundation works for the new residential and business precinct Kon-Tiki, for Pratt Property at the Sunshine Coast. The job entailed a 360 metre long diaphragm wall up to 18 metres deep, 100 ground anchors and 322 driven precast concrete piles.
The diaphragm wall provides basement retention for a two level carpark. The wall construction method consists of a narrow trench excavation with a fluid support system which is replaced by reinforced concrete. Following the wall construction, ground anchors were installed during excavation to the carpark basement. The 322 precast piles were then driven to provide the foundation system that would carry the building loads for the construction above.
Wagstaff prides itself on its team work and innovative staff who work together to solve problems large and small.
