Pile Testing Begins on M&S Peterborough Development

Pile integrity testing is underway at our development site at M&S, Bridge Street, to justify the load form adding three stories on top of the exiting structure. A hole has been broken out in the ground floor around the old pile cap. The earth has been carefully removed to expose the top of the pile below the cap and a sonic impulse is sent down the pile to determine its length. From this we will be able to back calculate the capacity of the piles.
