Case Studies

Woodlands Burial Ground, Lytchett Matravers

Customer – Glossbrook

Project Duration – 5 weeks

When – January 2016

Job Type – Secant Piling


Woodlands Burial Ground is a natural woodland cemetery. After deciding to construct a crematorium in their grounds, which has a high water table in the area, Suttle Projects was tasked with creating a water-tight seal with secant piling to enable the construction of a basement.

The pile wall was made up of female and male piles. To install the piles, a RTG 19T with auger and casing attachments was used, and the piles were filled with concrete injection. The female piles were installed using a soft concrete mix. The male piles were then installed by penetrating the edges of the female piles and filling them with a harder concrete mix. This was followed by the insertion of a reinforcement cage using a crawler crane.

Suttle Projects were also contracted to install bearing piles for structural support of the crematorium. The RTG 19 T and Klemm 709 were used for this, using auger with concrete injection to install the piles.
