Core Grouting Services have recently completed a structural strengthening scope of work on a pile supported structure in Ireland. Core deployed their high strength grouting spread to mix and pump the material used on the structure.
The piles in question were becoming corroded and losing their load bearing capacity. Under the scope of the project the steel piles were cleaned and a reinforcing cage was installed around the pile. Core used high strength grout to fill the formworks around the piles. This high strength grout not only increases the load bearing capacity of the pile but also helps prevent future corrosion of the structure.
