Pushing / Pressing Sheet Piles
Why push sheets instead of vibrate?
Pressing sheets instead of vibrating has become a very common practice in areas where keeping ground and noise disturbance to a minimum is required. Some of the concerns with vibrating sheet pile in certain areas are that:
It is often ineffective in ground conditions such as plastic, dense clay or compacting sands/gravels.
It can cause damage to surrounding structures resulting in litigation and repair costs.
