New Build Foundations - St Michael & All Angels Church, Alphington
Target was called to a peculiar project at St Michael & All Angels Church in Alphington, Exeter. The client wished to build an extension at the site of a historic pulpit. Despite the extension's relatively small size, the plan was hindered by a number of obstructions in the ground including existing foundations and graves. Due to the lightweight nature of the Heli Pile system and its ability to be installed where obstructions may be in the ground, it was recommended by the structural engineer.
There were also plans to build a mezzanine floor inside the church, which also required a lightweight piled foundation.
Target Structural was on site for three days and installed the Heli Pile system to depths of 1-4 metres. the clients were satisfied with both the speed and unintrusive nature of the installation.
