Site information

Victoria Embankment Foreshore

August 2019

At Victoria Embankment, excavation of the 48m deep shaft is well underway. The team used a jacking method to install the first 14 pre-cast segment rings that line the shaft. The rings were placed around the perimeter of the shaft before being push into the ground. The area within was then excavated. 

After the first 14 rings were successfully grouted in place the team swapped to an underpinning technique. This involves excavating down 1m, and installing the pre-cast rings below the current structure. This will be used for the remainder of the shaft. 

What are our working hours?
