Terrain Geotechnical Design Projects

Royal Mills, Ancoats, Manchester...

Terrain Geotechnical Consultants Limited were appointed consulting engineers for the design of two 10.0 metre deep basements using contiguous bored pile walls, as part of the refurbishment of a large complex of listed Victorian cotton mills known as Royal Mills in Ancoats, Manchester. Contiguous bored pile walls were proposed as temporary and permanent retention to the surrounding ground for these basements, however special care was required to limit wall displacements given the sensitivity of the adjacent historic mill buildings. A control system was implemented requiring that various piles were fitted with inclinometers, the results from which were better than expected.
