Balcones Estepona

The apartment block at Balcones Estepona was suffering structural damage due to excess settlement in the poor ground. The specialist engineers designed a suitable underpinning scheme to rectify the situation and Rock Foundations (SL) was asked to provide the ground engineering solution to deliver the scheme.

The Klemm 701 restricted access rig was mobilised to site and 66 number 200mm drill bar piles were successfully installed to a depth of 12.

Once completed the contractor was able to construct the specified ground beam incorporating the piles, the combination of piles and beams was sufficient to stabilise the property and prevent further settlement occurring.
