Sheet Piles

Sheet Piles in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, DRC Congo, Mozambique, Zambia, and the rest of the East African region.

Sheet piles are long, interlocking steel or concrete sections that are driven or vibrated into the ground to create a continuous vertical barrier. They are commonly used in construction and civil engineering projects for retaining soil and water. Sheet piles are designed to resist the lateral pressure of soil or water when installed in a trench or excavation.

Sheet piling services refer to the professional services provided by companies or contractors specializing in the installation, removal, and maintenance of sheet piles in construction and civil engineering projects. These services are crucial for projects that require retaining walls, excavation support, flood protection, coastal defense, and other applications where sheet piles are used.

Here are some of the key services we offer:

  1. Design and Engineering:
    • Assessment of site conditions, including soil type, water table level, and load-bearing capacity.
    • Customized design of sheet pile walls to meet specific project requirements.
    • Structural analysis to ensure the sheet pile design meets safety and stability standards.
  2. Sheet Pile Installation:
    • Driving or vibrating sheet piles into the ground using specialized equipment.
    • Ensuring proper interlocking and alignment of sheet pile sections to create a continuous barrier.
    • Adapting installation methods to suit different soil conditions and project specifications.
  3. Sheet Pile Extraction:
    • Removal of sheet piles from the ground after they have served their purpose.
    • Utilizing specialized equipment and techniques to safely and efficiently extract the piles.
  4. Temporary Works:
    • Installation of temporary sheet pile structures for use during construction or for short-term applications.
    • Providing support for excavations, cofferdams, or other temporary requirements.
  5. Water Tightness and Sealing:
    • Ensuring that sheet piles create an effective barrier against water infiltration.
    • Installing additional measures, such as seals, to achieve water-tightness where necessary.
  6. Monitoring and Inspection:
    • Conducting regular inspections of sheet pile walls to assess their condition and effectiveness.
    • Monitoring factors like settlement, deformation, and water pressure to detect any potential issues.
  7. Maintenance and Repairs:
    • Performing necessary maintenance tasks to prolong the lifespan of sheet piles.
    • Repairing any damage or corrosion that may occur over time.
  8. Customized Solutions:
    • Tailoring sheet piling solutions to specific project requirements, taking into account factors like site conditions, budget, and time constraints.
  9. Environmental Considerations:
    • Implementing environmentally friendly practices and complying with regulations for projects near sensitive ecosystems or bodies of water.
  10. Safety and Compliance:
    • Ensuring that all sheet piling activities adhere to safety standards and regulatory requirements.
