10–13 MAY

Further to previous notices, next week we can confirm that we will be working extended hours on Tuesday 10th to Friday 13th May inclusive to allow the installation of the remaining large diameter piles behind the Hammersmith Road Façade.

Works will begin at our usual time of 0800 and from this time we will be drilling the pile and installing the reinforcement cage. 

Between 1600 and 2300 we will pour concrete into the formed pile bores. This activity will require concrete to be poured through the tremie (a pipe dropped into the pile), requiring regular concrete deliveries. These activities will be supported by an electric crawler crane and a super silent jet washer.  Finally, between 2300 and 0000, a plunge column will be installed which will require the use of an electric crawler crane only

These works will be taking place behind the Central retained façade on Hammersmith Road, offering both noise and visual shielding. During dark hours we will have flood lights in use, however these will be carefully placed, facing inwards and angled, to cause as little disturbance as we can to residents.

We have attempted to carry out these works over a couple of days to avoid out of hours working and this has unfortunately not been successful as the wall of the bored hole has lost some integrity. To overcome this LORs strategy is to work late to complete the concreting operation in the same shift to maintain the high standard of quality needed for the project.

Working out of hours is never favourable, and so we would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation.

LATE NIGHT WORKING UPDATE

Further to previous notices we can confirm that we will be working extended hours until the end of May 2022 to allow the installation of the remaining large diameter piles behind the Hammersmith Road Façade. These works will not be taking place every evening and we will provide weekly updates as to the exact dates these works are anticipated to take place.  The first works are planned to take place on Friday 29th April.

Works will begin at our usual time of 0800 and from this time we will be drilling the pile and installing the reinforcement cage.

MAY-JUN

SATURDAY EXTENDED WORKING HOURS

Between now and the end of June we will be undertaking piling activities in Central on Saturdays during extended working hours until 18.00.  This will involve the use of piling rigs and attendant excavators and concrete wagons.

All works taking place will be located behind the Central retained façade on Hammersmith Road which will provide both acoustic and visual shielding.  We have undertaken a noise assessment and do not anticipate these works causing disruption over and above ambient levels.

Thanking you in advance for your cooperation on this matter.

5-6 APRIL

Works will be undertaken to install the largest pile on the Olympia project. We are planning to undertake these works over a 24 hour period from Tuesday 5th to Wednesday 6th April.

8am - 6pm - Drill the pile out
6pm - 8pm - Install the reinforcement in the pile
8pm - 3am - Concrete the piling
3am - 3:15am - Removal of the casing, end of works.

Wherever possible, we avoid working out of core working hours to the best of our ability, however in this instance due to the size of the pile, we will need to work continuously to complete the concrete pour. Please take assurance that all noisy activities will take place during core working hours 8am to 6pm only.

The boring (drilling) of the pile will be completed during normal working hours on Tuesday. From 6pm to 8pm the crane will be in use to install the reinforcement within the bored pile. Between 8pm and 3am, we will have concrete delivery wagons entering through G-Gate from Blythe Road, via Hammersmith Road. From 3am to 3:15am the installation will be complete by removing the casing, the only noise generated will be from the piling rig engine, which should not be particularly noticeable to residents. We anticipate that all works will be completed by 4am.

Flood lighting will be required during dark hours, facing inwards towards the site to minimise disturbance. All works will take place behind the retained Central façade on Hammersmith Road, therefore offering shielding for residents against noise and light nuisances.

Additional Best Practicable Means measures will also be enforced:

– Reduce operatives onsite to minimum required for the phase of operation
– No deliveries into site before 8am
– Use silenced Kelly bar when operating rig
– White noise reversing beacons on delivery vehicles
– Ensure supply chain partners take appropriate measures to complete the pour as quickly as possible
– Switch off plant engines if not in use
