Re-lining 36” Diameter Mains.

Thomas Street, leading up to The Shard, was excavated by MGJV to uncover the existing water main and sheet piles to support the excavations. Water main was also installed by MGJV. G8 lined the sheet piles with 50mm thick polystyrene in order to facilitate the sheet piles extraction once the concrete is placed to surround the newly laid water main. Major traffic management was undertaken while placing the concrete to trench containing water main. Once the sheet piles were lined and water main was wrapped in polystyrene, the steel reinforcement was installed and finally the concrete was placed surrounding the water main.
