Overview

Clippers Quay, Manchester

Sir Robert McAlpine, were the principle contractor to provide the construction of a new commercial development, in Salford Quays, Manchester.
As part of the development, a permanent steel pile retaining wall approximately 80m long was required to support the site elevation that backed onto Trafford Road, and in order to maximise the commercial space available.
SPI Piling Ltd, were appointed as the the steel piling specialist ( Piling Contractor of Choice! ), employed to design, supply and install the steel sheet piles required as part the design to improve the retaining wall structure.
Due to the varied restrictions and access conditions the piles are to be installed using the Modern Kowan WP150 Tosa Still Worker.
Clippers Quay, is a mixed development of Commercial and Residential properties, built on the site of a former cinema and is part of major regeneration works in the area.
