Portal West due to break ground!
The Portal West team are currently awaiting tender results of piling a contiguous wall/raft foundations which will be made up of as many as 555 reinforced concrete piles. The piles, ranging from approx. 15 to 35m long and up to 900mm in diameter, will be bashed into 70m of London clay. The contiguous wall around the perimeter of the site alone will comprise 365 piles. In fact, if the piles were laid end to end they would span the almost 20km from the site in Acton, West London, to Canary Wharf, East London.
