CPI's Piling Grout Provides Base For Edinburgh

Set in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual series of tattoos performed by Commonwealth armed forces, the British Armed Forces, and the International military bands and teams that perform throughout Edinburgh. The event takes place annually throughout August as part of the wider Edinburgh Festival. Every year around 220,000 people head to the Castle to watch the show on the esplanade.

The Tattoo is part way through a £16 million Castle Esplanade replacement project, part funded by the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise. Providing modern seating accommodation, improved corporate hospitality facilities, and superior rest and retail areas, the new facility, which will also reduce the time it currently takes to erect and dismantle the stands, will offer an enhanced experience for both spectators and performers. It will replace the existing 35-year old, award-winning Tattoo grandstands which were based on the innovative metro system used for Germany's 1972 Munich Olympics.

To ensure secure footing for the anchors into which the new grandstand could be quickly fitted, CPI EuroMix worked with specialist piling and foundation engineers, Roger Bullivant, to provide its piling grout.

Holes were drilled up to 17 metres deep into the solid rock of the esplanade into which CPI EuroMix's piling grout was pumped. Specified in a 45N/mm² strength, the 8" wide piles provide the base for the new anchors to be securely fixed.

To help minimise disruption around the Castle, which is Scotland's biggest visitor attraction, CPI EuroMix provided its distinctive Silo Mixing Station. Originally developed for the onsite production of brick laying mortar, the system has been enhanced to allow the production of specialist concrete products, such as piling grouts, on site.

Filled with dry material, it is simply plugged into the power and water supply and at the press of a button, mixed concrete is produced. Discharged via a connecting pipe, it enables the concrete to be pumped around the sites where the piles are required, without the need to move the silo. As required, the silo is easily refilled by tanker.

This innovative system eliminates the need for ready-mix tanker deliveries, meaning there is no waiting around or lost man hours on-site. It also means that inner city projects, such as the Castle Esplanade replacement project, avoid the logistical nightmare of directing large vehicles through heavily congested roads. Plus, there is never any concern over access to site. In addition, the Silo Mixing

Station means operators can produce the exact amount of material required, eliminating unnecessary waste.

Like all CPI products, the piling grout is manufactured under the BS EN ISO 9001:2000 quality system – the international standard of excellence – and is available from the company's network of plants throughout the UK and Ireland.

CPI Provides Piling Grout

Just nine miles south of Glasgow, Kirktonholme Park is being built by Bett Homes. The new development features a mix of two and three bedroom apartments. On the site of a former coal mining works, the ground needed reinforcing before any building work could commence to avoid the threat of future subsidence.

Working with specialist piling and foundation engineers, Roger Bullivant, CPI EuroMix provided 150 tonnes of its 4N/mm2; strength piling grout. To aid with efficient on site delivery, the company also provided its innovative Silo Mixing Station.

The Silo Mixing Station, originally developed for the onsite production of brick laying mortar, was pioneered in the UK by CPI EuroMix. Filled with dry material, it enables perfectly mixed mortar to be despatched at the touch of a button, eliminating waste and maximising on site efficiency. Recently CPI EuroMix has enhanced the system to allow for the production of specialist concrete products, such as piling grouts and structural concrete.

The Silo Mixing Station has many advantages for civil engineering applications. One of the industry's simplest yet efficient production tools, it discharges material around sites via a pipe, allowing for easy distribution, with no need for the silo to be moved.

CPI Provides Piling Grout

As part of a new housing development in East Kilbride, stabilisation of the ground was required to create a firm base on which to build. To assist with this, CPI EuroMix provided its innovative Silo Mixing Station and piling grout.

Innovative Piling Solution Built On Solid Grounds

An innovative new piling solution that provides on demand piling grout has been an unprecedented success for CPI EuroMix – so much so, groundworks contractor Abbey Pynford has come back for more.

Currently on site at 1 Tudor Place, the project is CPI EuroMix's third consecutive contract with the Watford-based piling specialist. Located in the heart of central London, it showcases exactly why the on-demand piling grout supply system is proving so popular.

The £20 million scheme will see the construction of a new seven-storey office complex. It will comprise a double basement, steel frame structure with hollow ribbed floors and full height glazing units set within aluminium curtain walling, together with a Category A fit out.

Before the construction of the new building could start, a 30 week demolition programme was undertaken. Following this, Abbey Pynford was called upon to reinforce the ground with 150 piles – 350mm in diameter and up to 25 metres deep over two levels – spread across a basement and a lower ground floor. Further complicating matters, Abbey Pynford must also work around existing piles, some of which are up to 1 metre in diameter.

With such a complex project and a tricky central location, the innovative CPI solution of producing piling grout on site, on demand, offered the ideal method of ensuring maximum site efficiency.

The system utilises CPI EuroMix's distinctive Silo Mixing stations to prepare fine concrete, which can then be discharged, via a connecting pipe, around the site to create piles as soon as they are required.

By eliminating the need for ready-mix tanker deliveries, there is no waiting around or lost man hours on-site. It also means that inner city projects, such as Tudor Place, avoid the logistical nightmare of directing large vehicles through heavily congested roads. Plus, there is never any concern over access to site.

Originally developed for the on-site production of mortar and render, the Silo Mixing stations mean operators can produce the exact amount of material required, eliminating unnecessary waste. This means Abbey Pynford is able to install the piles quickly and efficiently.

Craig Macklin for Abbey Pynford, commented: "The CPI silo mixing station offers a much more reliable and efficient method of delivering piling concrete when compared to ready-mix deliveries.

"Ready-mix deliveries are often delayed due to traffic and many sites, especially in city centres, have restricted access. Being able to produce concrete on demand is a much more effective way of ensuring the project stays on schedule."

This latest contract follows CPI Euromix's involvement with Abbey Pynford at Holland Park and Bayswater – both extensive and challenging refurbishment projects to London hotels.

Like all CPI products, the foundation grout is manufactured under the BS EN ISO 9001:2000 quality system – the international standard of excellence – and is available from the company's network of plants throughout the UK and Ireland.
