Aarsleff Ground Engineering has been working for shed specialist Winvic to complete the sheet piling for the Bell Farm 40-acre logistics park in Bedford.

The greenfield site is approximately 4.5km southwest of Bedford Town with a farmhouse and associated outbuildings located to the north west of the site. The southern east of the site is bordered by the A4280.

Piling work followed a six-week programme seeing Aarsleff install 329.4 l/m of driven steel sheet piles – a key geotechnical feature for the Bedford Link Logistics Park.

The steel sheet sections were installed along the western boundary of the site, complemented with pre-boring and folded steel capping beam.

Aarsleff’s design strategically produced five sections which accompanied and suited the true ground conditions by defining each section with its own personalised steel section size and length.

Aarsleff employed pre-boring of the pile positions to loosen the surrounding ground to ensure the design toe depth was achieved and to gather observations pertaining to ground conditions.

Aarsleff deployed five machines to ensure the piling programme was met without any delays using a Hitachi excavator to offload the steel sheet sections, a Soiltek drilling rig to conduct pre-boring, a Sennebogen crane to handle and pitch the piles and a leader rig to install and back install the steel sheet sections using driving vibratory hammer.

Aarsleff’s work is a fundamental component of commercial building projects, having provided the foundations and geotechnical solutions for many schemes including mega-retail sheds, distribution warehouses, University accommodation and major supermarket and household name units.
