LDG Lloyds Testing Helps Lay Foundations for Premier Dublin Development

LDG Lloyds Testing were appointed by Brazil Piling and

Foundations to carry out static, dynamic and integrity testing at Cairn Homes luxury Marianella Development in Rathgar,Dublin.

Cairn Homes are focused on delivering optimal build quality, energy efficiency and the best possible customer experience. The Marianella development in Rathgar, one of
Dublin’s most distinctive old villages, is just three kilometres from the city centre and in an architectural conservation area.

Brazil Piling and Foundations installed all the piles with 2 number CM 50 rigs over a 2-3 week period.

LDG Lloyds Testing carried out static, dynamic and integrity testing on 245 No. 450 diameter CFA piles with depths ranging from 6 to 9 meters.

The team used both 6MN and 3MN beam set-ups to facilitate both preliminary and working tests simultaneously providing an efficient and cost effective testing regime. Dynamic testing was carried out using Lloyds Testing 3.2t SAM RAM hammer,mobilising capacities up to 2750kN. The hammer system and 3MN beam can also be mobilised on one 40ft low loader, providing the client with further savings.

Integrity testing is ongoing.

“The Marianella development is a project that is all about the finer details so we were confident that LDG Testing would deliver. We are, as ever, impressed with the efficiency and versatility of their testing services”.
