500PLUS REIDBAR helps shore up difficult site
Piling, shoring and ground anchoring specialist Civil Foundations has utilised Infrabuild Construction Solutions' (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Reinforcing) 500PLUS 32mm REIDBAR as a grout-injected ground anchor in its first sheet piling application in Australia.
Civil Foundations was responsible for the sheet piling of the three-level basement car park for The Pinnacle, a new block of residential units being built by Sydney-based property developer Skyton. Located at 151 O’Riordan Street in Mascot, the project presented an extreme dewatering and shoring challenge for Civil Foundations, with a perched water table and a 100-year-old sewer servicing more than 50,000 local homes running adjacent to the site.
