Time for the toys as this yellow digger levels the ground and lays the piling ‘mat’ of crushed stone. This will allow the 60-ton piling rig to move over the soft earth. The drilling rig will be drilling down 10m and extracting the fill so liquid concrete can be pumped down the centre of the drill as it withdraws. This will leave a cylinder of concrete in the ground, socketed into the Keuper sandstone below. There will be more than 300 piles like this on the site to form a retaining wall for the upper level and building foundations. Strong foundations for a substantial business.
