The volunteers were inexperienced in screw piling so an engineer attended site to provide training on the safe use of the equipment. We assisted them with safe working methods to allow them to pile at 45 degrees on a steep slope.
“We had a good session of familiarisation training with one of your engineers on Wednesday . I would just like to say how pleasant and helpful he was, it was a pleasure to work with him.”

We enjoyed working with the Cotswold Canal Trust as the team are all volunteers, so they were keen to learn and get stuck in.
We are now assisting the trust with the design of a further 4m high gabion retaining wall which will be supported on screw piles. We are keen to see how this second project progresses and hope to continue to be involved with the wider project of re-opening the Thames and Severn Canal for public use.
